Figures of Invention A History of Modern Patent Law (Oxford University Press: 2010) (with Brad Sherman)
Taking the invention as its object of study, this book develops a radical new perspective on the making of modern patent law. It develops the first extended historical and conceptual exploration of the invention in modern patent law. Focussing primarily on the figures that make inventions material, and on how to overcome the intangibility of ideas, this intellectual challenging book makes explicit a dimension of patent law that is not commonly found in traditional commentaries, treatises and cases.
