ABSTRACT. Chon attempts to map the challenges raised by recent encounters between intellectual property and development, proposing a normative principle of global intellectual property. Gervais notes that the economic purpose of copyright law is instrumentalist in nature, ensuring the orderly production and distribution of, and access to, works of art and intellect. Janis and Smith present a case study about the potential for new technology paradigms to drive intellectual property regimes towards obsolescence. According to CDT, the same technology that has led to the communications revolution makes infringement easy and has opened the door to widespread piracy.
