This long awaited book by Peter Drahos is quite deliberately entitled 'a' philosophy of intellectual property. It is not simply a history of the philosophy of intellectual property, but presents Drahos' own understanding and model of an underlying philosophical framework. However, Drahos' method is one of frequent reference to, and interaction with, historical schools of thought: his own philosophical contribution is thoroughly contextualised.
