This book combines extracts from major cases and secondary materials with critical commentary to provide a complete resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of intellectual property law.

All areas of intellectual property law in the UK are covered: copyright, trade marks and passing off, confidential information, industrial designs, patent, procedure and enforcement. This book also tackles topical areas, such as the application of intellectual property law to new technologies and character merchandising. While the focus of the book is on intellectual property law in a domestic context, it provides international, EU and comparative law perspectives on major issues. It also
addresses the wider policy implications of legislative and judicial developments in the area.
