The rising importance and continuous expansion of intellectual property protection quite naturally goes together with increasing concern about the legal and political foundations of such enhanced protection. Nowhere does the basic equation which underlies intellectual property, namely that the pursuit of short term private interest by the holders of such property will satisfy the public interest in the long term, become both more visible, but also questionable than at the crossroads between the grant and enforcement of exclusive rights with international trade. Catchphrases, such as patent protection and access to essential medicines, or access to genetic resources, benefit sharing and economic development, stand for fundamental tensions and conflicts between private property and the public interest.
This book presents the contributions that have been made on these and related topics by a group of internationally renowned experts at a workshop held at the College of Europe, Bruges.

This book is written in honour of Paul Demaret, an exceptional academic who has made a significant contribution to the development of European Law and more generally European Integration. It is dedicated to him as he finishes his second term as Rector of the College of Europe. In this book, his colleagues and friends, fellow academics and practitioners, will analyze the current state and future perspectives of the various dimensions – both internal and external – of European legal integration. The contributions included cover inter alia fundamental rights protection and EU citizenship, institutional aspects of European integration, the internal market and its flanking policies, EU competition law and practice, external aspects of EU integration, international trade and foreign policy. Le présent ouvrage rend hommage au Professeur Paul Demaret, un universitaire exceptionnel qui a contribué de manière très significative au développement du droit européen et de l’intégration européenne de manière plus générale, à l’occasion de l’achèvement de son deuxième mandat de Recteur du Collège d’Europe. Ses amis et collègues, universitaires et praticiens, analysent l’état et les perspectives de nombreux aspects – internes et externes – du droit et de l’intégration européenne. Les contributions couvrent notamment la protection des droits de l’homme et la citoyenneté européenne, les aspects institutionnels de l’intégration européenne, le marché intérieur européen et ses politiques d’accompagnement, le droit et la politique de la concurrence, les aspects extérieurs de l’intégration européenne, le commerce international et la politique étrangère de l’Union européenne.

Edited by Inge Govaere and Hanns Ullrich

The main objective of the contributions to this book is to bring together two seemingly different strands of thought: the competition-law analysis of the exercise of intellectual property, and the discussion about the proper limits of protection, which at present takes place inside the intellectual property community. Both are burdened with their own problems, particularly so in Europe, where market integration and the divide between exclusionary and exploitative abuses ask for a more dimensional approach, and where the shaping of intellectual property protection is under not only the influence of many interests and policies, but a multi-level exercise of the Community and its member states. The question is whether, nevertheless, there is a common concern, or whether the frequently asserted convergence of the operation and of the goals of competition law and intellectual property law does not mask a fundamental difference – namely that of, on the one hand, protecting freedom of competition against welfare-reducing restrictions of competition only, and, on the other, limiting the protection of exclusive rights in the (public) interest of maintaining free access to general knowledge. The purpose of the workshop held in 2007 at the College of Europe, Bruges, and whose results are published here, was to ask which role market power plays in either context, which role it may legitimately play, and which role it ought not to play. A tentative answer might be found in the general principle that, just as intellectual property does not enjoy a particular status under competition law, so competition law may not come as a white knight to rescue intellectual property protection from itself. However, the meaning of that principle differs according to both the context of the acquisition and the exploitation of intellectual property, and it differs from one area of intellectual property to the other. Therefore, an attempt has also been made to cover more facets of the prism-like complex of problems than is generally done.

Paul Demaret, Inge Govaere and Dominik Hanf

This book gathers together contributions from thirty-two former and current professors who have, through their teaching in the Legal Studies Department at the College of Europe, enhanced the College’s reputation as an authentic European academic postgraduate centre of excellence.
Within their areas of specialisation the authors analyse both the evolution of European law over the years and more specific questions. The contributions cover institutional/constitutional law, judicial remedies, the law governing the internal market and its accompanying politics, competition law, and the law of the Union’s external relations.
Cet ouvrage rassemble les contributions de trente-deux professeurs, anciens et actuels, du département d’études juridiques européennes du Collège d’Europe. Par leur enseignement, ceux-ci ont assuré à cette institution, originale par sa dimension européenne, sa reconnaissance en tant que centre académique post-universitaire d’excellence.
Les auteurs analysent, chacun dans sa spécialité, l’évolution du droit européen ou des questions plus particulières. Les contributions couvrent ainsi le droit institutionnel/constitutionnel, le contentieux, le droit du marché intérieur et de ses politiques d’accompagnement, le droit de la concurrence et le droit des relations extérieures de l’Union européenne.

L'Europe subit des mutations permanentes. La vie politique, l’'’économie, le droit, mais également les sociétés européennes, changent rapidement. L'’’Union européenne s'’’inscrit dès lors dans un processus d'’’adaptation constant. Des défis et des nouvelles demandes surviennent sans cesse, provenant à la fois de l’'’intérieur et de l'’’extérieur. La collection des « Cahiers du Collège d'’’Europe » publie les résultats des recherches menées sur ces thèmes au Collège d'’’Europe, au sein de ses deux campus (Bruges et Varsovie). Focalisés sur l'Union européenne et le processus d'’’intégration, ces travaux peuvent être spécialisés dans les domaines des sciences politiques, du droit ou de l’'’économie, mais ils sont le plus souvent de nature interdisciplinaire. La collection vise à approfondir la compréhension de ces questions complexes et contribue ainsi au débat européen.

Critères pour l'’acceptation des manuscrits dans la collection :

    - Un manuscrit abouti et finalisé, rédigé dans un anglais et/ou français correct, ne demandant pas ou pratiquement pas de correction linguistique

    - Un manuscrit mis aux normes éditoriales de la maison d'édition

    - L'excellent développement d'’un sujet relevant d'un des quatre domaines de recherche du Collège d’'Europe (Droit, Économie, Science politique et diplomatie, Relations internationales ou une approche interdisciplinaire) ; qui est à jour qui ouvre des perspectives sur le futur

    - Un texte original, qui représente une valeur ajoutée aux études européennes et qui est destiné à une audience académique internationale

    - Un texte qui montre une expertise dans le champ des études européennes, ou une discipline annexe, qui rencontre les attentes (élevées) des lecteurs de la collection

    - Un livre qui se veut être académique et analytique, et non politique ou idéologique, même si, bien entendu, les recommandations peuvent laisser transparaitre des préférences.

On conseille aux futurs auteurs de faire relire leur manuscrit par un ou deux collègues, pour augmenter les chances d'’acceptation du manuscrit.

Les manuscrits proposés seront soumis pour évaluation aux directeurs de collection ainsi que, de façon anonyme, à un comité d'’évaluation externe.


Europe is in a constant state of flux. European politics, economics, law and indeed European societies are changing rapidly. The European Union itself is in a continuous situation of adaptation. New challenges and new requirements arise continually, both internally and externally. The «College of Europe Studies» series seeks to publish research on these issues done at the College of Europe, both at its Bruges and its Warsaw campus. Focused on the European Union and the European integration process, this research may be specialised in the areas of political science, law or economics, but much of it is of an interdisciplinary nature. The objective is to promote understanding of the issues concerned and to make a contribution to ongoing discussions.

Criteria for acceptance of manuscripts include:

    - a fully-fledged mature manuscript in correct English and/or French, which requires little or no language editing

    - a manuscript which is technically up to standard and in conformity with the publishers editorial guidelines

    - a good treatment of a subject in the four areas that the College of Europe has expertise in (Law, economics, political science and diplomacy + International Relations or a solid interdisciplinary treatise); which is up-to-date and preferably also forward looking

    - a text which is original and presents an added value in EU studies for a sophisticated international academic readership

    - a text showing expertise in EU studies, or the relevant segment of it, which reflects the (high) expectations or readers of the College of Europe series

    - a book which is academic and analytical, not political or ideological, although of course (policy) recommendations can express certain preferences.

Potential authors are well advised to have the manuscript read critically by one or two colleagues, so that the chances of being accepted increase.

Submitted manuscripts will be subject to a critical review by the book series editors as well as external «blind» peer review.
