New book on Intellectual Property and Employment Law

Professor emeritus Niklas Bruun has edited a new book that explores the right of employers and employees with regard to intellectual property (IP) created within the framework of the employment relationship.

This comprehensive Research Handbook investigates the development of employee IP from a comparative perspective, and contextualises issues in the light of theoretical approaches in both IP law and labour law.

The book, which has been edited by Professor emeritus Niklas Bruun, Hanken in cooperation with Marja-Leena Mansala (former Secretary General of IPR University Center), examines the most crucial building blocks of employee IP, such as authorship, inventorship and creatorship as well as individual, corporate and collective works. New trends regulating employee IP as trade-secrets, non-compete clauses and cross-border business matters are also included.

The book contains contributions not only by the editors but from leading experts all over the world. Professor Nari Lee, Hanken examines fairness and employee inventions in Korea and Japan.

The book launch is 22.10  at 14 in the Assembly Hall at Hanken in Helsinki, Arkadiankatu 22.
