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' or trade marks with global appeal have all impacted on the laws surrounding intellectual property. Furthermore, globalisation has resulted in greater pressure to expand the rights of intellectual property owners as they endeavour to capture the potential benefits of ownership in an increasingly affluent and integrated world economy. This book provides a detailed and scholarly insight into Australian intellectual property law. It aims to offer students and legal professionals a detailed discussion of the black-letter aspects of the law, with the primary emphasis on the legal principles and complexities within.

    • Focuses on the legal principles and complexities of the law
    • Offers student and legal professionals alike a detailed discussion of the black-letter aspects of the law
