For the past year I have been writing a manuscript entitled Intellectual Property Policy, Law and Administration in Africa: Exploring Continental and Sub-regional Co-operation for publication by Routledge in the third quarter of 2015. This has been a labour of love – hard but enjoyable work writing about things that matter to me – Africa, IP, law, policy and equity. The research that went into this book has been shared on this blog and the Afro-IP blog via my series on IP policies in Africa. Chapter 2 of the book summarises my findings on the state of IP policies in Africa and their import. So in a sense, readers of the blog have walked part of my writing journey with me. Those who haven’t read this series yet can do so here. Once the book is in print, I’ll run a series on this blog discussing its main ideas and arguments.
