Expropriation by Law

Intellectual Property, Value and Labor
New Horizons in Institutional and Evolutionary Economics series

Placing himself at the crossroads of economics, law, and sociology, Christian Bessy investigates the contemporary transformation of intellectual property rights (IPR) with the emergence of new conventions for their valuation. He demonstrates how entities previously considered inappropriate have now become the object of property rights by means of a creeping legal codification and generate inequalities.
