Intellectual property, and especially international intellectual property, is a field of rapid growth and increasing importance, particularly given the high rate of modern technological advances.
This work provides a comprehensive introduction to intellectual property covering all aspects of intellectual property law and administration. Coverage includes:
an in-depth examination of international cooperation in intellectual property, including an analysis of the principal multilateral treaties in the field;
attention to the administrative details of various regimes, including patent information, documentation systems, and the functioning of industrial property offices; and
material prepared by the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Introduction to Intellectual Property has proven a popular reference work for government officials, lawyers, intellectual property attorneys and businesspeople. Its coverage and introductory level also make it appropriate for practitioners considering the expansion of their practices or those who find themselves dealing with some intellectual property issues in their current practices and need to become articulate on the subject. In addition, this work is useful for academics involved in the study of intellectual property.
