The book deals with all areas of intellectual property law in the UK: copyright, trade marks and passing off, personality and publicity rights, character merchandising, confidential information and privacy, industrial designs, patent, procedure and enforcement. It also tackles topical areas, such asthe application of IP law to new technologies and the impact of the Internet on trade marks and copyright.
