Abstract

This chapter briefly summarizes the impact of critical theoretical methods on intellectual property (IP) scholarship. It speculates that the influence of critical legal theory on IP is greater than typically acknowledged or understood, and draws on scholarly examples at the juncture of critical and liberal theories to make this point. Note that the current SSRN version replaces the original draft dated July 24, 2018 and entitled IP and Critical Theories.

Keywords: Critical Legal Studies, Critical Theory, Intellectual Property
