About the Authors
  • This book provides a picture of how Australian intellectual property law has developed as a distinctly Australian body of law during the century since the country was established. The book takes a selection of key intellectual property law cases and tells their stories, situating each case in its historical, cultural, social or economic context, as well as providing factual details about, for example, the arguments made in each case and the evidence adduced. In part, the book offers a deeper legal analysis of the selected cases, many of which have been central to the framing of Australian intellectual property law. The book also provides a fuller sense of each case as revealing and influencing wider understandings and practices. Landmarks in Australian Intellectual Property Law is a valuable resource for teachers, researchers, practitioners and judges in Australia and throughout the common law world.

    • Chapter authors are leading Australian IP experts
    • The book revisits key Australian IP cases (of relevance and interest in Australia and more widely in Commonwealth jurisdictions)
    • Chapters were workshopped by the authors and then developed to aid the coherence and value of the book
