DESCRIPTION

Contemporary Intellectual Property: Law and Policy offers a unique perspective on intellectual property law, unrivalled amongst IP textbooks available today. Beyond providing an up-to-date account of intellectual property law, the text examines the complex policies that inform and guide modern IP law at the domestic (including Scottish), European and international levels, giving the reader a true insight into the discipline and the shape of things to come. The focus is on contemporary challenges to intellectual property law and policy and the reader is encouraged to engage critically both with the text and the subject matter. Carefully developed to ensure that the complexities of the subject are addressed in a clear and approachable manner, the extensive use of practical examples, exercises and visual aids throughout the text enliven the subject and stimulate the reader. Online Resource Centre: Students and lecturers alike can access extensive updates to the key areas of law, as well as pointers on answering the discussion points posed in the text. Also included are two bonus chapters; 'History of Registered Design Law in the UK to 1988' and 'History of Unregistered Design Protection in the UK'.
