Intellectual property laws now impact on our daily lives in much more obvious ways than in the past and effect how we access or engage with technology, medicine, nature, education and entertainment. Australian Intellectual Property uses broader social and economic contexts to locate the black-letter law in the everyday, making it an accessible introduction to IP that will equip students with a foundation of legal knowledge for either entry-level practice or to progress into more specialised postgraduate study of IP law.

In relation to the key areas- copyright, design, patents, confidential information, passing off and trademarks the book provides:

  • a policy overview of the legal category, its history and emerging trends
  • an explanation of the structure of the legislation and associated rights
  • leading case extracts to elucidate key legal principles and tensions
The new edition includes a new chapter on the 'Criteria for the Subsistence of Copyright' to address the significant developments in this area of Australia law following IceTv v Nine Network Australia (2009), extensive discussion of the impact of Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Act 2012(Cth), and new cases and extracts.
