This volume draws attention to a broad set of global regulatory agendas with which intellectual property systems, principally through the auspices of TRIPS and the WTO, are now irrevocably linked. The importance of the role of intellectual property in the regulation of food, agriculture, biodiversity, the environment and health is highlighted. The papers in this volume address aspects of what might be described as an intellectual property crisis, and suggest ways in which intellectual property regulation can progress.
