Putting IP Writers In Their Place

Putting Intellectual Property In Its Place (2014, Oxford University Press) was written by three academics who got a grant from the Canadian government. Focused on tedious dribble, the book appears well researched, though the authors, while able to form sentences, have no clue how to write. Much of this slender volume has nothing to do with IP. There is a single chapter with a story about Canadian plant patents that is guaranteed to cure insomnia within a page or two. Otherwise, the book covers obscure tales of copyrights that no one not locked away in solitary confinement with this single book could possibly have any interest in.
