NewBkIntellectualPropIntellectual Property for the 21st Century: Interdisciplinary Approaches
Edited by B Courtney Doagoo, Mistrale Goudreau, Madelaine Saginur and Teresa Scassa
Irwin Law
561 pages

Over the past two decades, globalization, digitization, and the rise of the Internet have each contributed to a new prominence for intellectual property law in public policy debates around the world. Questions about how intellectual property is controlled, licensed, used, and reused are all part of a growing public discourse that now engages far more than an elite cadre of lawyers. Because intellectual property law now trenches so deeply on issues of economics, culture, health, commerce, creativity, and intellectual freedom, it is no surprise that there is also a burgeoning literature on intellectual property issues that comes, not just from legal academics or lawyers, but from those trained in other disciplines. In the spring of 2012, the Centre for Law, Technology, and Society at the University of Ottawa hosted a workshop that sought to bring together academics from different disciplines interested in intellectual property law in order to stimulate discussion across disciplines, to encourage the development of collaborative efforts, and to produce a body of research that explores intellectual property law issues from explicitly interdisciplinary perspectives. The collection of papers in this book is the product of this workshop.

By Steve Coughlan, Robert J. Currie, Hugh M. Kindred and Teresa Scassa

This book is about the reach of law beyond state borders from a Canadian perspective. It investigates the scope of the legal and practical power of Canada to assert, and to respond to foreign assertions of, extraterritorial jurisdiction. Ultimately, the authors articulate a theoretical and analytical framework to aid decision making by law and policy makers when Canada is faced with the issue of whether to act extraterritorially. The book revisits Canadian jurisdictional principles and practices in a way that will resonate with lawyers and legal policy makers of all kinds.

NewBkBailUnderstanding Bail in Canada
By Gary T. Trotter
Irwin Law

Bail engages a dramatic conflict between individual freedom and society’s right to protect itself. While the conflict is straightforward and easy to understand, the same is not true of Canadian bail law. In this book, Justice Gary T Trotter, a former prosecutor and law professor, provides a straightforward account of this bewilderingly complex area of the law. In a highly readable style, Trotter draws a straight line through this legal morass, making it accessible to the legal profession and beyond.
