At the heart of this doctoral thesis are the challenges to modern patent law, particularly from the rapid developments in biotechnology.


This book focuses on human gene patents, patents in the animal world, and the pressures put on the patent system by the climate change debate. However, the title looks at patent law from a multilevel and fragmented perspective, including taking a critical view of the increasing involvement of the EU in procedural and substantive patent law.
