Description

A uniquely practical approach to intellectual property law: unfold the problem, reveal the law, apply to life.

Using this new and innovative textbook, students are given a problem scenario to unfold; as they do this they will learn to understand the key questions and issues surrounding each area of intellectual property law.

As each problem is explored, clear explanations reveal the central legal concepts underpinning the relevant topic. Further illustrations and references to the problem apply the law, enabling students to see for themselves how the law interacts with everyday life and business and giving them a deep and practical understanding.

Online Resources

Review quote

The writing is clearly informed by the latest research in the relevant fields and contains plenty of in-depth analysis. The problem questions work well and the authors have provided plenty of clues for students to solve these problems throughout the chapters. The chapters are conducive to active and interactive learning * Dr Chen Wei Zhu, Lecturer, University of Birmingham * The question at the beginning of each chapter and answer given at the end will be very popular among the students. They will not only use it as a tool to understand IP law but also use it as a guideline to answer the problem questions in exams * Dr Lingling Wei, Senior Lecturer, Bournemouth University * The scenarios at the beginning of each chapter is a great idea as it will encourage students to consider the key issues at hand. As they read the chapter they will be able to focus on the problem they have been given, taking time to consider the relevant theory. I genuinely believe that this will provide invaluable ongoing contextualisation of the topic * Ria Hill, Lecturer in Law, University of Wolverhampton * An innovative approach to the content and I commend the authors on these chapters. I think they are fulfilling an unmet need in this area of law. The problem based scenario helps to place the law in context and to build up applied understanding. It serves as a useful focus and consolidates the legal content * Sallie Spilsbury, Principal Lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University *
