Beyond specificities of each intellectual property right, some principles and rules are common to all or several intellectual property rights. Therefore certain statutory provisions enacted at European or international levels are of great importance for all or various intellectual property rights.
Intellectual property is one of the branches of law where the international harmonization started the earliest thanks to international conventions (e.g. the Paris Convention of 20 March 1883 for the Protection of Industrial Property).
Harmonization is still at work today (e.g. with the Agreement on Trade-related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) and has been carried on to a high degree at a regional level thanks to the secondary legislation of the European Union (especially thanks to directives and regulations).
This volume aims to offer the reader a rapid understanding of some of these European or international texts which deal with some general and jurisdictional issues and are very important from a practical point of view.
