Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this monograph provides a survey and analysis of the rules concerning intellectual property rights in Austria. It covers every type of intellectual property right in depth:

copyright and neighbouring rights,

  • patents,
  • utility models,
  • trademarks,
  • trade names,
  • industrial designs,
  • plant variety protection,
  • chip protection,
  • trade secrets,
  • and confidential information
Particular attention is paid throughout to recent developments and trends.

The analysis approaches each right in terms of its sources in law and in legislation, and proceeds to such legal issues as subject matter of protection, conditions of protection, ownership, transfer of rights, licences, scope of exclusive rights, limitations, exemptions, duration of protection, infringement, available remedies, and overlapping with other intellectual property rights.

The book provides a clear overview of intellectual property legislation and policy, and at the same time offers practical guidance on which sound preliminary decisions may be based. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Austria will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative intellectual property law.
