"Helfer and Austin explore the unmapped terrain lying at the junction of intellectual property law and human rights law. Their book can be used as the basis for an intriguing new course that would bring together students interested in intellectual property, international law, trade, human rights, indigenous people's rights. The volume also furnishes a tremendous resource for scholars. It provides a close analysis of the relationships among these disciplines and includes citations to, or excerpts from, all the key legal instruments in both human rights and intellectual property law, as well as considerable coverage of the relevant scholarship."

"The debate about patents and access to HIV medicines has made headlines around the world. But the interplay between intellectual property law and human rights is multidimensional. Does copyright law endanger the freedom of expression? Is a parody about a trademark permitted free speech? Is intellectual property a human right? This book is essential reading for anyone studying the interface between human rights and intellectual property."
