Reviews

"While undoubtedly providing a "basic understanding" of intellectual property law, this volume in fact accomplishes far more. For a student of IP ... it seems a valuable resource whether as an introduction to the subject or an aid to revision, with its content-rich, concise yet flowing style. New practitioners in this area will also appreciate it, not least for the straightforward manner in which it introduces and places into context, expressions and practices to which experienced IP lawyers refer to on a regular basis. Whichever the category of reader, they can be confident that this book will give a clear and comprehensible analysis of the subject in question with the minimal possible reading time." - Laura Phillips, European Intellectual Property Review
