Description

Intellectual Property Law is the definitive textbook on the subject. The authors' all-embracing approach not only clearly sets out the law in relation to copyright, patents, trade marks, passing off, and confidentiality, but also takes account of a wide range of academic opinion enabling readers to explore and make informed judgements about key principles. The particularly clear and lively writing style ensures that even the most complex areas are lucid and
comprehensible.

Review quote

Review from previous edition 'There is no doubt that this edition is a perfect textbook for students, scholars and practitioners working on and interested in the subject of intellectual property in general.' * European Intellectual Property Review * 'Its written style is impressive: lucidly explaining the detailed legal and, often, social issues that intellectual property law, in particular, encoutners. The authors' written style ensures these issues are not lost within the detail.' * Student Law Journal * 'Clear, in-depth, insightful, comprehensive, and comprehensible...a must for all serious students and researchers of IP law.' * Estelle Derclaye, Professor of Intellectual Property Law, University of Nottingham * 'Given the outstanding expertise of the authors, it is not surprising that Intellectual Property Law provides an in-depth analysis of protection regimes and problem areas while keeping the discussion clear and concise. A must read.' * Martin R.F. Senfteblen, Professor of Intellectual Property, VU University Amsterdam * 'Indispensible for anyone working or studying in the field. Comprehensive without sacrificing nuance.' * Graeme B. Dinwoodie, Professor of Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law, University of Oxford *
