This important new book takes an integrated approach to the legal, business and technical aspects of the commercialisation of intellectual property in Australia. The expert commentary examines much of the law and some of the business and economics of commercialising and licensing intellectual property rights in an interdisciplinary and comparative context. Topics addressed include the international trade context of intellectual property rights and their role in driving innovation, funding and development of intellectual property in the private and university sectors, identifying appropriate legal structures for the business of commercialising intellectual property, licensing intellectual property including the special case study of multimedia, intellectual property as security, insolvency, and the taxation of the intellectual property life cycle.

The authoritative and wide-ranging coverage make this essential reading for legal and other professionals working with intellectual property and its commercial exploitation, and it will be a valuable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students and academics.
