This chapter notes the concept of choice of law reform. It primarily focuses on the absence of a choice made by the parties in contracts in relation to intellectual property, ubiquitous, and multi-State cases about infringement (tort), issues of contributory liability, and the security interests in intellectual property. Many of the existing jurisdiction provisions are somewhat dated if one wishes to use that word in an internet and intellectual property context. Modern circumstances of the exploitation of intellectual property rights suggested a need for reform. The chapter also notes the emergence of security interests in intellectual property which inevitably correlates to private international law.
