abstract = "On December 14th, 2008, one of the world's most renowned patent scholars, Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Joseph Straus, celebrated his 70th birthday. Shortly thereafter, a great number of colleagues and friends gathered in his {"}academic home{"}, the Max Planck Institute at Munich's Marstallplatz to congratulate and pay tribute to this {"}distinguished grandmaster of intellectual property law{"}. One of his birthday presents was a colossal book honoring his lifelong dedication to intellectual property law and his widely recognized achievements, not only in his primarily patent law-related research and teaching, but also in creating the Munich Intellectual Property Law Centre and in leading, developing and administering academic endeavors at the famous Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition and Tax Law with its tremendous library and research net-work. In over 900 pages this so-called liber amicorum comprises 60 (!) articles written by friends, colleagues and pupils from more than 15 different countries in Asia, America and Europe. The articles address a wide range of legal, economic and policy perspectives on various challenges related to the title of the book: {"}Patents and Technological Progress in a Globalized Economy{"}. Starting with Rainer Moufang's portrayal of the fascinating life and career of Professor Straus and the leitmotivs of his work (pp.VII–XVII), which is followed by the table of contents and a brief description of the contributors (pp.XIX–XXX), the book sets out to address a remarkable variety of crucial issues in the complex debates shaping today's technology related intellectual property law. Besides dealing with topics that directly concern Professor Straus' primary research interest, i.e. international and comparative patent law with a special focus on biotechnology and the interface of IPR with competition law, the book also features contributions discussing various procedural, multi-jurisdictional and public policy aspects from a more general perspective.",
