Abstract

The relationship between intellectual property (IP) and private international law (PIL) has become fraught with tension. Now that the digital networked environment provides scope for simultaneous multi-territorial communication of works and trade symbols and consequent global infringements of rights in such material, the problem of cross-border enforcement of IP rights cannot be ignored. An exploration of the relationship between IP and PIL would therefore seem to be an excellent example of the “across IP” theme that permeates this volume.
