Trade Marks and Competition Law

Alison Firth, Spyros Maniatis, Ioannis Kokkoris, Noam Shemtov, and Apostolos Chronopoulos

  • The only book to focus on the interaction between trade mark law and competition law.
  • Offers practical analysis embedded in a theoretical justificatory background.
  • Adopts a 'competition plus' perspective, considering not only competition law in the strict sense but also the need for open and innovative competitive markets, and the topical debate about whether more and broader trade mark rights enhance or stifle competition.
  • Detailed comparative review and analysis of jurisprudence from national and international jurisdictions across Europe (European Court of Justice, UK, France, and Germany), the US (Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal), and Australia.
  • Discusses the judicial toolkit for cases of this kind, identifying the tools courts employ and successful lines of argument.
