Knowledge As Property
Author(s): Rajshree Chandra Rs 875.00
The ‘idea of knowledge as property’ has been a current topic, discussed widely across the globe and its effects on the human society. The discussions are focused on the political, cultural and ethical issues underlying the IPRs. These debates are complex and wide ranging because Intellectual Property Rights restricts the access to the people who do not have the rights and thus cannot exercise their own diverse rights. The book is an in-depth analysis of the basic assumptions and the notions of possessing intellectual property as a right. The book is an analysis of the benefits and losses of IPRs which claims an individual autonomy. To propound the inherent propensity of IPR’s conflicting with other rights, the author examines three important rights –health rights, indigenous people’s knowledge rights and farmer’s rights. The book has probed into the issues of IPR’s legitimacy in supporting these rights, the IPR’s suitability to fit into the framework that unites welfare and equal access to advantage and autonomy. It is also an exploration of the challenges faced by liberal theory of rights in relation to the collective claims to knowledge rights and practices.
The book s comprehensive text which aims at providing an understanding of IPR’s in India in the global context and an invaluable book for students, scholars of law, political science, WTO studies and development economics. This book is incisive and assessable and is very useful to policy makers, social scientists and NGOs.
