About this book series

This series, sponsored by the Applied Research Centre for Intellectual Assets and the Law in Asia (ARCIALA) focuses on intellectual assets and law in Asia, and also addresses international intellectual property (IP) norms that would impact Asian development. IP study thus far, globally speaking, is focused on the Western hemisphere as it continuously generates and disseminates new paradigms and legal norms to the rest of the world. Asia has been an importer and follower of those IP standards. The limited study of the Asian IP landscape in English is more on a national level, and seldom on a pan-Asia level which is the approach taken by this series. Asia as a growth engine of the world is now transitioning to a higher economic development level and will have a much more significant effect on international IP
law moving forward.

Key themes covered in the series include: innovation, economic growth and IP; the interplay between IP law and competition law; the intersection between IP and trade talks; patent; copyright; trademark; and individual country studies.
