Intellectual Property

  • Frank Cunningham
Chapter
Part of the Critical Political Theory and Radical Practice book series (CPTRP)

Abstract

The approach in this chapter to intellectual property relates it to Macpherson’s views on neoliberalism and globalization, where intellectual property is primarily concerned with international corporate control of pharmaceutical goods, technological developments, and the like. Contributions in Macpherson’s thought are located in its critique of neoliberalism and defence of an inclusive conception of property.
