The book ‘Grounds of the Immaterial. A Conflict-Based Approach to Intellectual Rights’ has been published by Edward Elgar Publishing. Written By Niels van Dijk, the book applies a novel conflict-based approach to the notions of ‘idea’, ‘concept’, ‘invention’ and ‘immateriality’ in the legal regime of intellectual property rights by turning to the adversarial legal practices in which they occur. In doing so, it provides extensive ethnographies of the courts and law firms, and tackles classical questions in legal doctrine about the immaterial nature of intellectual property rights from a thoroughly new perspective.
