Intellectual Property in the Life Sciences: A Global Guide to Rights and Their Applications, Second Edition provides crucial guidance on all major IP issues affecting the life sciences sector. It uniquely satisfies two practical needs: a global reach that reflects the worldwide markets within which the life sciences industry now operates and a sector-based approach addressing the issues that those in the business face.

Brought fully up to date by world-leading specialists in the field, it provides an overview of the key international and European IP legislation, complementing the book’s central theme of monopoly protection. In addition, the book now features coverage from 20 jurisdictions of the most important and topical life sciences issues on which intellectual property has an impact.

Subjects explored within the national chapters include small molecules, secondary patents, DNA and biologicals, patent infringement and enforcement, compulsory licensing, branding and designs, counterfeiting and know-how protection, and patenting and supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) in personalised medicine.

New to the second edition are four standalone chapters providing enhanced coverage on the EU Trade Secrets Directive, SPCs, personalised medicines and latest developments concerning the Unitary Patent Court.

This new guide is essential reading for lawyers, in-house counsel and other professionals advising firms in the life sciences industry.
