Chapter 13: Intellectual property enforcement: empirical consideration of enforcement action

Jane Cornwell


This chapter examines empirical legal research carried out into the civil enforcement of intellectual property rights by creative industry rightholders. Setting the analysis in context against research into intellectual property enforcement generally, the chapter highlights that there has been relatively little empirical research into civil enforcement relating specifically to the creative industries. The chapter reviews findings from relevant studies from across a number of different jurisdictions. The chapter concludes with reflections on those findings and suggestions for further empirical legal research into intellectual property enforcement in the creative industries in the future.
