The last major revision of United Kingdom Trade Marks law occurred in 1938. This book introduces the changes brought about by the Trade Marks Act 1994 and includes a register of trade marks, with a relaxed test of registrability. It provides information about protection through registration for shapes, packaging, sounds and smells, multi-class applications, improved rights and remedies for the trade mark owner against infringement and counterfeiting, deregulation of assignment and licensing and procedure for the international registration of marks. The book gives a detailed commentary on the law, suggests where the old law may still be relevant in interpretation and predicts future developments, in particular relating to the law of passing off and unfair competition. In this book the new law is placed in the context of the UK's international obligations to protect intellectual property under the Paris convention and Madrid Protocol.
