about

This volume provides an in-depth analysis of the relationship between intellectual property rights (including patents, trade marks, copyright, and designs) and the law of the European Union. It examines the conflict between intellectual property rights (exclusive rights limited normally to theterritory of a single Member State) and the principle of free movement of goods and services in the internal market. The various tests and theories propounded by the European Court of Justice in attempting to resolve that conflict are explained from a critical standpoint. The ramifications of theexhaustion-of-rights principle are explored and chapters of this volume are devoted to trade marks, patents, and copyright. Finally, the volume examines the limitations on the exercise of intellectual property rights as a result of EC competition law.Volume 2 will cover EU legislation which has harmonized intellectual property law and created unitary intellectual property rights such a the Community trade mark.
David T. Keeling is a Member of the Boards of Appeal of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs).

Editorial Reviews

.,." a high quality work.... It is written in a lilting and comfortable style. Keeling gives insight into the European Court of Justice and how it manages to operate in the intellectual property domain that, from its jurisprudential basis in culture, science and consumer protection, has been an antithesis to cross-border cooperation."--The Law and Politics Book Review
