European Intellectual Property Law, a programme offered at Stockholm University, has historically been an international discipline as opposed to what is the case with other traditional areas of law.



A recent internationalising factor is the gradual development of an EC intellectual property law. This new body of law will gradually have a unifying effect on the national laws. The process, however takes time.

European Intellectual Property Law has not only great political and economic significance but also great cultural significance. The internet and other forms of international telecommunications clearly demonstrate that intellectual property recognises no national borders.

The considerable technological development of the last decades have brought quite dramatic effects on intellectual property as a whole, as well as on the various legal modalities included. We have seen debates on for example: “patents on life?” precluding needy people from receiving medicine they need, on indigenous peoples’ fear of being robbed of their traditional properties and on copyright being a threat to the freedom of speech.
