Prof Tuomas Mylly's paper discusses constitutionalisations of European intellectual property law from the perspective of social acceleration. He maintains that the judicature, the executive and the private sphere continue to replace the legislators as the critical drivers of intellectual property policies.
The presentation is based on – and develops further – Mylly’s recent work published in Griffiths and Mylly (Eds): Global Intellectual Property Protection and New Constitutionalism. Hedging Exclusive Rights (Oxford University Press 2021, open access https://global.oup.com/academic/product/global-intellectual-property-protection-and-new-constitutionalism-9780198863168).
Tuomas Mylly is Professor of Commercial Law at the University of Turku, Finland, and director of the IPR University Center (Helsinki). His research cross-cuts aspects of intellectual property, competition and EU constitutional law, with current projects focusing on private ordering.
