This accessible new book delivers in two key areas: first, a new way of thinking about copyright reform in countries which are engaged in the modernization of their copyright laws; and second, a new international approach to copyright regulation in the era of globalization.

This volume draws specific attention to a number of special policy concerns which should inform post-socialist reform. These include the encouragement of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, the role of intellectual property in post-socialist modernization, the protection of cultural heritage and minority rights, and the close relationship between recognition of authorsā€™ rights and the protection of fundamental human rights and freedoms. While these policy issues are generally important to intellectual property regulation, they are of special concern in the post-authoritarian context.

This highly readable book will interest students and academics involved with copyright and intellectual property law and well as transitional studies.
