Holyoak and Torremans Intellectual Property Law provides readers with a clear introduction to UK intellectual property law, whilst carefully placing the law in its global context and acknowledging the influence of EU and other international jurisdictions over its development.

The book examines the methods and reasoning behind key statutory and case decisions, and provides readers with real life examples of intellectual property law in action, helping to bring the subject to life. Recent developments within the law relating to biotechnology patenting, IT and internet, and trademark, imaging and character rights are explored, providing readers with a cutting edge analysis of the subject.

Chapter introductions and concluding overviews help to set the scene and provide a succinct summary of the topic areas, whilst lists of annotated further reading offer the perfect starting point for those who wish to explore a topic further. This book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which provides weblinks and updates between editions.
