Intellectual Property World Desk Reference helps the busy practitioner quickly develop a practical understanding of intellectual property laws in over 80 countries around the world.

This one-of-a-kind quick desk reference provides a complete overview of available protection in all IP categories. It is designed to be useful for attorneys who need to reach a rapid understanding of the main intellectual property issues on a country-to-country basis. Intellectual Property World Desk Reference succintly and accurately describes:-

  • The categories of intellectual property that are protected in each country
  • The steps necessary to obtain permission
  • Costs of obtaining protection
  • International Treaties to which each country is a signatory
Intellectual Property World Desk Reference also contains classes of information that are vitally important to transactions involving intellectual property, but that have not been included in most intelectual property resources to date. This information includes:-
  • Whether license agreements are subject to government approval
  • Whether there are limitations on royalty rates
  • Whether here are currency controls or withholding taxes that apply to royalty payments

Chapters on the United States and the provinces of Canada address topics such as:-
  • The enforceability of covenants not to compete
  • Protection of confidential information
  • Personality rights
  • Franchise legislation
  • Privacy legislation
