Title: Managing the Legal Nexus Between IP and Employees: Domestic and Global Contexts
Editors: L Oswald and M Pagnattaro
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
The explosion in intellectual capital coincides with a growing understanding of the importance of human capital to the firm.

Title: IP and Genetically Modified Organisms: A Convergence in Laws
Editors: C Lawson and B Charnley (eds)
Publisher: Ashgate
Taking a global viewpoint, this volume addresses issues arising from recent developments in the enduring and topical debates over Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and their relationship to Intellectual Property (IP).

The work examines changing responses to the growing acceptance and prevalence of GMOs. Drawing together perspectives from several of the leading international scholars in this area, the contributions seek to break away from analysis of safety and regulation and examine the diversity of ways the law and GMOs have become entangled.

This collection presents the start of a much broader engagement with GMOs and law. As GMO technology becomes increasingly more complex and embedded in our lives, this volume will be a useful resource in leading further discussion and debate about GMOs in academia, in government and among those working on future policy.
