Abstract

The conventional wisdom in Egypt, as in many developing countries, examines the issue of intellectual property solely as a question of policing and enforcement. Yet a more critical examination is urgently needed, whereby IP law, policy, and practice are viewed from a development perspective, rather than from an enforcement perspective. Such an approach is explored in the introduction to this forthcoming book, an edited volume featuring original, interdisciplinary research on these themes.

Keywords: intellectual property, economics, development, patents, copyright, access to knowledge, rent-seeking
