This bestselling textbook is the ultimate guide to intellectual property law, with a well-earned reputation for illuminating the complexities of the law with unparalleled clarity.

The authors' all-embracing approach not only clearly sets out the law in relation to copyright, patents, trade marks, designs, passing off, confidentiality, and misuse of private information, but also takes account of a wide range of academic opinion enabling readers to explore and make informed judgments about key principles.

The exceptionally clear and lively writing style, coupled with images from key cases, ensures that even the most complex areas are lucid and comprehensible.
