Intellectual Property - A Power Tool for Economic Growth
Author(s): Kamil Idris | Publication year: 2003
Intellectual Property - A Power Tool for Economic Growth seeks to demystify intellectual Property (IP) and to explain the why and the how of the subject. Its message is that intellectual property is a "power tool" for economic development and wealth creation that is not yet being used to optimal effect in all countries, particularly in the developing world. It is a practical guide to using those intangible assets - such as knowledge, information, creativity and inventiveness - that are rapidly replacing traditional and tangible assets - such as land, labor and capital - as the driving forces of economic health and social well-being.
