Maskus (economics, U. of Colorado, Boulder) presents a selection of 21 key papers addressing intellectual property rights (IPRs), trade, and economic development. Written by some 30 international economists, political scientists and legal scholars, the articles were previously published between 1991 and 2003, and have been influential among professional scholars and policy makers. The articles are organized into sections on the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) and its requirements within the multilateral trading system; the economic fundamentals of protecting IPRs; controversies surrounding IPRs and economic development; and theoretical and empirical analysis of the economics of IPRs in the global economy, including effects on trade, investment, innovation, growth, and technology policies.
