Reviews

...it is an interesting and helpful format to have the practical effect of the implementation of various international laws and instruments at issue set down in reports from different jurisdictions...The structure of the book overall is helpful because it follows a natural progression with complementary issues effectively placed side by side...Discussion of these issues, backed up by evidence in the form of country reports from those Asian jurisdictions where they are most relevant, are the real draw-cards of this collection. Louise Buckingham Copyright Reporter Vol 25 No 1 Feb 2007 ...essential reading for anyone practising copyright law with an eye on Asia. It is also indispensable for anyone desiring a succinct and forceful analysis of the latest technology issues in copyright law. Yee Fen Lim Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice Vol. 3, No. 1, 2008 ...consistently thought-provoking to say the least...Any advanced copyright researcher should have a copy. Alice Lee Singapore Journal of Legal Studies December 2007
