The Palgrave Macmillan Law Masters series is a long-established list of titles providing clear, concise and authoritative guides to the main subject areas, written by experienced and respected authors. This sixth edition of Intellectual Property Law has been thoroughly updated to reflect the recent developments in this intricate and technical area of commercial law. All key aspects of the topic are covered, including copyright, designs, patents, trade marks, passing off and breach of confidence. With backgrounds in both academic teaching and top legal practice, the author team combines to produce a work which is both intellectually stimulating and highly practical. The new edition includes a new expanded section on privacy. The book is an ideal course companion for undergraduates and postgraduates on law and business-related courses. It is also a useful reference for company secretaries, in-house lawyers and contracts managers.
