DESCRIPTION

Bently and Sherman's Intellectual Property Law is the definitive textbook on intellectual property law. The book's all-embracing approach not only clearly sets out the law in relation to copyright, patents, trade marks, passing off and confidentiality, it also takes account of a wide range of academic opinion enabling readers to explore and make informed judgments about the key principles. The authors' particularly clear and lively writing style ensures that even the most complex areas are lucid and comprehensible, and the text is further enlivened with illustrations and diagrams. This edition: - includes further illustrations and diagrams to help aid reader understanding and illustrate key concepts - includes a sample patent application to help students understand this particularly complex topic - takes account of the latest changes in the field, including the implementation of performers' moral rights, the implementation of the EC enforcement directive, and the EC directive on artists' resale royalty - examines developments in case law at the ECJ, particularly in relation to trade marks and databases - accomodates developments in TRIPS interpretation In short, any serious scholar of intellectual property law, along with practitioners working in the area, will find that this book is an invaluable mine of information on all topics relating to IP law.
