On one hand, some of the info about certain legislation is out of date On the other hand, with the TPP and revisions to DMCA, the information about how these processes work and how corporations and government instill a state of contemporary feudalism, is as important as ever. this book is amazing the author spent years interviewing people who negotiated treaties that have impacted the economy of information, and essentially determine who can have access to what information at what price it s not for the faint of heart, but this is the most comprehensive analysis of the global intellectual property regime out there it gets right into the heart of why drugs can be so expensive in developing countries and how the united states launders its laws by convincing a multilateral forum to adopt a treaty, then coming back to congress and saying look at this international treaty, we have to make a domestic law so that we comply with it.
