This guide gives an in-depth analysis of the legal problems which arise where European law and free trade and competition rules impinge upon the exploitation of IP rights. It includes a detailed analysis of issues relating to all types of intellectual property rights including patents, copyrights and trademarks, and addresses a range of problems encountered by practitioners which emerge as a result of grey areas in the rules. The narrative is further complemented by a study of the practical approaches to exploitation of intellectual property in the light of European rules plus the relevant EU Treaty provisions and legislative materials. This is a concise and comprehensive reference work which takes a highly practical approach to a complex area of community and intellectual property law. It is designed to help solicitors and barristers with specialist responsibility for intellectual property and/or commercial law to understand and interpret the various issues involved.
