About the Book

This is the second, edition of the leading intellectual property cases and materials Book by Professor W.R. Cornish. Cases and Materials on Intellectual Property is a "one-stop" source which enables readers to refer to actual statutory texts and relevant case Law in digested form. Professor Cornish draws upon a wide selection of intellectual property legislation that applies in the U.K. including much that is derived from the European Community. The book covers decisions of British and Commonwealth courts, the European Court of Justice and the European Patent Office.

The Second Edition has been fully updated to incorporate recent legal developments, including :

1. Amendment of copyright law to meet the terms of E.G. Directives
2. The Trade Marks Act 1994 and the introduction of the Community Trade Mark alongside a harmonised set of rules for national registration systems in the E.G.
