Ambush marketing is any attempt to create an unauthorised or false association with an event thereby interfering with the legitimate contractual rights of the event's official marketing partners. Looking at both traditional intellectual property rights (such as trade marks, copyright anddesigns) as they relate to sporting events, and event-specific legislation (such as that of the Olympics), this book gives comprehensive and detailed coverage of ambush marketing.

With the United Kingdon hosting three major events; the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012; the Commonwealth Games in 2014; and the Rugby World Cup in 2015, this new edition provides a timely andtopical update on the area. A materials section is included providing 'ambush marketing' specific legislation both in the UK and other countries.
