About the Book

Intellectual Property has eventually come to be recognized as a valuable asset and a significant driver to propel economic growth and market transactions. Indeed, they are of the utmost importance when it comes to business strategy, trade, and commerce. With time the corporate value has transitioned from merely a manufacturing unit to an IP based unit. A major part of the companies value nowadays come from its IP asset, for instance, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Gucci, Coca Cola and so on.

However, it is often challenging to understand or navigate through the business strategy of a company or how they commercially exploit their IP assets. Hence, this book intends to present an analysis of the commercial aspect of intellectual property and what laws can do to support the stakeholders in the process of commercialization.

The analysis of the subject matter may not be limited to Indian market transactions, Indian law, and cases. Since the transaction of IP is not just national but international, a reference must be made to other jurisdictions and cases particularly the EU and the US as and when necessary.
