Three book reviews by CREATe PhDs have recently been published in recognised journals:

On privacy and data protection issues, Methinee Suwannakit reviews Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux ‘Designing for Privacy and its Legal Framework: Data Protection by Design and Default for the Internet of Things’. Her review praises the book’s “friendly format” which should serve as a useful reference for practitioners and policymakers alike. A pre-print version is available here and the published version is available in International Data Privacy Law.

On cultural heritage, Jiarong Zhang reviews the “meticulous commentary” offered by Enyinna Nwauche’s ‘The Protection of Traditional Cultural Expressions in Africa’. Recommended for researchers investigating TCEs, indigenous property and related rights, a pre-print version is available here and the published version is available in the European Intellectual Property Law Review.

Amy Thomas reviews James Meese’s ‘Authors, Users, and Pirates: Copyright Law and Subjectivity’, which offers a new relational framework of understanding key copyright actors. The review applies Meese’s framework to the recent discussions of the Copyright Directive, and concludes that the book is likely to inspire future research into the author-user-pirate triad. A pre-print version is available here and the published version is available in The Modern Law Review.

A composite version of the book reviews are available as a CREATe Working Paper (2019/8) here.
