As part of the Core Text Series, Intellectual Property Law provides students with an overview and clear understanding of the principles of this exciting area of the law. It covers the six key areas of patents, copyright, industrial designs, confidential information, and unregistered and registered trademarks, whilst also placing intellectual property in its wider context, recognising the economic and social influences on its development and examining
associated ethical issues.

In this book, Jennifer Davis conveys the excitement being generated as this area of the law advances into uncharted territories, whether in human creative enterprise or international commerce. Close attention is paid to changes in technology and in the global economy which have affected the law's development. The author also casts a critical eye over the constant expansion of legal protection afforded to intellectual property, and asks if this is to be welcomed.

Review quote

While undoubtedly providing a "basic understanding" of intellectual property law, this volume in fact accomplishes far more. For a student of IP ... it seems a valuable resource whether as an introduction to the subject or an aid to revision, with its content-rich, concise yet flowing style. New practitioners in this area will also appreciate it, not least for the straightforward manner in which it introduces and places into context, expressions and practices to
which experienced IP lawyers refer to on a regular basis. Whichever the category of reader, they can be confident that this book will give a clear and comprehensible analysis of the subject in question with the minimal possible reading time. * Laura Phillips, European Intellectual Property Review *
