This practical, thorough and detailed account of the key issues facing trade mark use is written by a leading authority on the subject. Drawing on British, European, and US law, plus other sources, the author considers both the problems that trade mark law causes in business and commerce and how to solve them. Written in an approachable style, the work contains useful flow charts, examples, and vignettes to capture the essence of trade mark law as it operates in practice.
