Annotation States do not adopt strong intellectual property rights only as a matter of rational economic policy, declares Ostergard (global cultural studies, political science, and Africana studies, State U. of New York-Binghamton) at the outset, but also as a rational political policy. He examines the second, neglected dimension of the equation, pointing out that industrialized and non-industrialized countries have different goals in regard to intellectual property.
