International intellectual property law has begun to transition from a system that favors worldwide harmonization to one that must accommodate nations that prioritize local optimization. Each government is in the process of balancing their own national priorities, including poverty, healthcare, and efforts to grow their economy. Further, patent rights affect consumers, who must pay for the increased costs of patented products. To optimize their domestic patent systems, nations can rely on the policy levers embedded within their domestic patent systems. One primary method of doing so is the inventive step requirement. This chapter examines the various ways that governments arrive at different results using this same patentability requirement.

This research review examines the many facets of the public domain. It discusses key papers whose topics are the various justifications for a rich repository of publicly available information, including policies favouring robust competition, free speech, and scientific and technological advances. It also explores problems in ensuring access to public domain works, as well as commons management mechanisms. Perspectives on the dynamic between the public domain and the creation of new works are also presented. This research review is an insightful resource for students and researchers, with a consideration of the public domain as an important topic in its own right as well as information on the underlying rationales of intellectual property law.
