About the Authors
  • Intellectual property law in Australia has changed dramatically in the last decade and continues to change. Developments in technology, the rise of the internet, the globalisation of trade and the increasing importance of 'superbrands' – trade marks with global appeal – have all affected the laws surrounding intellectual property. Furthermore, globalisation has resulted in greater pressure on intellectual property owners to expand their rights as they endeavour to capture the potential benefits of ownership in an increasingly affluent and integrated world economy. Australian Intellectual Property Law, 2nd edition has been fully revised to take into account these significant case and legislative developments in trademarks, copyright and patents law. This book offers students and legal professionals a detailed discussion of the black-letter aspects of the law, with a primary emphasis on legal principles and complexities.

    • Provides comprehensive coverage of recent developments in Australian intellectual property law, such as the rise of the internet, the globalisation of trade and the increasing importance of 'superbrands'
    • Features a companion website with upcoming amendments to the Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Bill 2011
    • Written by experts in the field of intellectual property law in Australia
