9780198089117: Knowledge as Property: Issues in the Moral Grounding of Intellectual Property Rights (Oxford India Paperbacks)

This book analyses the basic assumptions and premises of the notion of intellectual property as a right. It goes on to show how intellectual property rights prevent those who do not own them from accessing and exercising their own diverse rights. Thus, in a way, IPRs violate the very idea of individual autonomy on which it bases its claims. Highlighting the inherent propensity of IPRs to conflict with other rights of other peoples , this volume examines three important rights: health rights, indigenous peoples knowledge rights, and farmers rights.

About the Author:

Rajshree Chandra is Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Janki Devi Memorial College, University of Delhi

Review:

Overall this book will be of great help to those researchers and scholars who want to understand intellectual property rights and their impact on society. --The Indian Journal of Political Science

Rajshree Chandra reminds us of some new sources of critical morality emerging from people s movements that contest knowledge rights as privileging new ways of domination over lifeforms and lifeworlds in nature, culture, and society. This work, seeking to question the moral grounding for IPRs, constitutes a necessary as well as an immense provocation. --Upendra Baxi, Emeritus Professor of Law, University of Warwick, Warwick

Rajshree Chandra s book makes the normative and the empirical speak to each other persuasively and with admirable force. This theoretically sophisticated book reflects an acute understanding of intellectual property rights in the context of global inequalities and the hierarchies of knowledge between the global North and South. --Niraja Gopal Jayal, Professor, Centre for the Study of Law and Governance Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
