Sabine Jacques


Understanding the interface between creative industries and intellectual property goes beyond assessing the economic value of creativity, to encompass fuller consideration of the ways in which cultural industries generate social and cultural value. The editors of this new research handbook on CI and IP law have curated a balanced and detailed volume on this fairly novel topic, featuring a multidisciplinary approach incorporating a range of perspectives including law, economics, history, philosophy and language studies.
