Format: Paperback
This book dares to ask why the developing world should agree to economic colonialization via an intellectual property regime they had no part in making. Highly recommended.

9 of 31 people found the following review helpful By IP Advocate on May 27, 2005
Format: Paperback
Two quotes from the book: "Patents reflect human arrogance ..." and "Patents also reflect the arrogance of western civilization ...". These two sweeping generalities are unjustifiable and inexplicable yet they are the basis for the book. This book is of no use to anyone who understands intellectual property, patents, copyrights, trade secrets or other forms of original creation deserving of legal protection.
