In Bertie Van Zyl (Pty) Ltd & another v Minister for Safety and Security & others 2010 (2) SA 181 (CC) para 21 it was held that the purpose of a statute plays an important role in establishing a context that clarifies the scope and intended effect of a law. This statement, which captures the essence of a purposive approach to statutory interpretation, fundamentally underlies the idea behind The Object and Purpose of Intellectual Property. Editor Susy Frankel brings together a diverse range of contributions that make an unequivocal intervention in intellectual property (‘IP’) scholarship, offering in-depth policy explanations for national positions in international IP forums, and that suggest helpful solutions to some of the problems that nations face in applying and/or formulating IP law and policy.
