Abstract

Historically, the bodies of legal doctrine known as private international law and intellectual property have inhabited largely separate spheres. Recent technological developments have, however, made possible the communication and infringement of IP rights on a global scale. This article examines the current relationship between private international law and intellectual property as well as a recent reform proposal by the American Law Institute.

Keywords: private international law, international, intellectual property, cross-border, reform
