Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology: Transnational and Comparative Perspectives
Smyth, Endres, Redick and Kershin
Edward Elgar Publishing
“… [The book] comes at the perfect time and fills a great void on the subject it addresses. Genetically Modified Organisms are innovative – so have to be the answers to the legal questions raised by their development: What should be the definition of damage? Who should be held liable? Where should claims be brought? The Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety have been discussing these issues for many years and are now ready to give some answers by means of a new multilateral environmental treaty. The comprehensive analysis and comparative data put forth by the authors contribute enormously to the current debate and provide detailed insights into the nuances of international liability in a manner previously unaddressed.”
