This book completes a process initiated with the convening of a meeting of experts in the fields of intellectual property, economics, political science and trade at Florida State University College of Law in Tallahassee, Florida in April 2012. The participants were invited to prepare and circulate draft papers prior to the meeting, and to develop those papers into book chapters following it. In addition to the authors of the chapters, we would like to acknowledge the valuable presentations and participation in the meeting by Professors Nick Drager (McGill), Justin Hughes (Cardoza), Mingde Li (China Academy of Social Sciences) and Arti Rai (Duke). Antony Taubman (WTO) joined the meeting for an enriching presentation via video conference from Geneva. The co-editors of this book were ably aided by research assistants Sabina Kania (FSU JD Candidate), Veronica La Roca (UBACyT Fellow), and Dr. Kylie McKenna (RegNet, Australian National University) and we thank them for their help.
