Abstract or Description

Explores the theory of regulatory chill from an intellectual property perspective. Assesses the implications of some of the most controversial investor-state dispute settlement disputes involving intellectual property rights. Argues that the threat to regulatory freedom posed by the inclusion of an investor-state dispute settlement mechanism in the TTIP should not be underestimated.
