The terms diversity and intellectual property are rarely seen together. This unique book brings together a number of leading authors to discuss a range of topics relating to diversity and intellectual property. Since it is uncommon to see these topics linked as they have been here, it may not be immediately apparent to potential readers what they can expect from this collection or why they should read it. This terrific volume, edited by Irene Calboli and Sri Ragavan, contains essays that are both informative and thought provoking.
This book will serve as an excellent resource for intellectual property scholars, policy makers and practitioners. As the first book to address intellectual property and diversity, this book is a significant contribution to the literature. This edited collection highlights the intersectionality of the different aspects of diversity in intellectual property. Calboli and Ragavan have started an important conversation about diversity in global intellectual property law. Hopefully, this timely conversation will continue.
