    Intellectual Property in New Zealand: a User's Guide to Copyright, Patents, Trade Marks and More
    A handy introduction to copyright, patents, trade marks and other key elements of IP. From small businesses filing patents to designers protecting their copyright, from a gas station seeing its logo ripped off by a competitor to a blogger posting photographs, New Zealanders encounter intellectual property every day. Sometimes they need to call a lawyer. But at other times, they just need to get a clear understanding of what they can and can't do in order to go about their business. This handy little book, written by one of the country's leading intellectual property lawyers and author of the major texts on the subject, is an accessible introduction to patents, trade marks, copyright and other key elements of IP. Aimed at non-lawyers looking to understand basic concepts and key issues, the book will be a guiding light through the often murky waters of intellectual property law. What can be patented? Do you have to register a trade mark? How does copyright work on the internet?
    Tackling common questions in concise and accessible prose, Intellectual Property in New Zealand: A User's Guide should sit on the desk of entrepreneurs and designers, journalists, inventors and many more across New Zealand. Costing about three minutes of a lawyer's time, it's a book worth owning.

  • International Indigenous Rights in Aotearoa New Zealand
    International Indigenous Rights in Aotearoa New Zealand
    Over the past four decades, international indigenous rights have become a prominent aspect of international law and are now enshrined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Yet, while endorsed by Aotearoa New Zealand in 2010, little remains known about how these standards came about, how the international movement that created them was established, and the implications of these standards on national reforms already protecting Maori rights.

    International Indigenous Rights in Aotearoa New Zealand seeks to answer these questions. This collection of essays places the Declaration in the context of New Zealand rights around such issues as Treaty settlements, mining policy and the status of Maori children. Crucially, it also asks how Maori can hold New Zealand to account against international indigenous rights.

  • Interregnum
    Interregnum
    Is New Zealand's political settlement beginning to fray? And does this mean we're entering the interregnum, that ambiguous moment between society-wide discontent and political change? In BWB's latest book of essays, edited by Morgan Godfery, ten of New Zealand's best emerging thinkers gather to debate the 'morbid symptoms' of the current moment, from precarious work to climate change, and to discuss what shape change might take, from 'the politics of love' to postcapitalism. The Interregnum interrogates the future from the perspective of the generation who will help shape it.

  • Island Kingdom Tonga Ancient and Modern
    Island Kingdom Tonga Ancient and Modern
    The island kingdom of Tonga, situated in the South Pacific about a third of the way between New Zealand and Hawai'i, was probably the first part of Polynesia to be settled by humans, about 3,000 years ago. Periods of isolation alternated with periods of regular contact with neighbouring island groups while Tongan culture developed its distinctive variant of the Polynesian theme. Modern Tonga was moulded by dramatic changes in the nineteenth century during which the population converted to Christianity, and a formal state was established under a written constitution. As a result of benign British supervision, Tonga was the only Pacific archipelago not to be formally controlled by a European power. After two or three generations of tranquil consolidation, late in the twentieth century a vigorous and ambitious king forced his country into a trajectory of economic development and rapid social change, which eventually created a demand for political reform and democratisation. Tonga is less isolated, more prosperous and yet seemingly more troubled now than at any time in its history.
