In the law, as in other domains, the predominance of English is both a gift and a curse. Ours is an age of global rapprochement, at least in the literal sense, brought about by technology. As national borders become increasingly porous, the possibility of conversations across legal cultures has never been more interesting or relevant. In no area of the law could this be more apparent than in relation to intellectual property, which is intimately connected with technological developments. English, as a shared language, makes these conversations possible – however halting or incomplete they might be – promising to enrich the understanding of law on all sides.
Intellectual property law faces serious challenges worldwide, with many in the international community arguing that the law fails to provide much-needed support for either individual rights or the public interest in the technological environment. The Cambridge Handbook of Intellectual Property in Central and Eastern Europe offers a novel look at intellectual property issues through the lens of the post-socialist and transitional experience in Central and Eastern European countries. Contributors include both recognized and emerging leaders in their jurisdictions of interest, and experts on US, European Union, and international law. Taken together, they offer a thought-provoking critique of current approaches and build a compelling case for cogent policymaking. This important work reflects the formative experiences of a difficult history, demonstrating the courageous optimism of scholars in a region that has repeatedly overcome the challenges of the past, while consistently looking to its authors and innovators for leadership and inspiration.
