This volume is a compendium of the Sir Hugh Laddie Lectures delivered at University College London (UCL) in the period between 2009 and 2018. This is a public lecture series organised by the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law (IBIL) at UCL Faculty of Laws in honour of IBIL’s founder – Professor Sir Hugh Laddie.
Presented as a collection of verbatim lecture transcripts, rather than formal papers, the book brings the subjects to life by providing the reader with a ‘fly on the wall’ experience. As distinguished IP judges, academics and policy makers, the eminent men and women who gave these lectures have all played a prominent role in shaping the recent development of intellectual property law. The lecture forum affords them the opportunity to speak in a personal capacity, often with surprising candour, which casts what may seem well-worn subject matter in a new and interesting light.
The book, as a whole, highlights controversial legislative policies and decisions, tracks legal shifts and affords extra-judicial perspectives, providing an enlightening and historically relevant snapshot of intellectual property over the last decade. In doing so, it not only provides a valuable reference source for the UK and international IP community but also provides anyone with a true interest in intellectual property law a set of eminently readable essays.
