Book description

With the rise of internet marketing and e-commerce around the world, international and cross-border conflicts in trademark and unfair competition law have become increasingly important. In this groundbreaking work, Tim Dornis - who, in addition to his scholarly pursuits, has worked as an attorney, a public prosecutor, and a judge, giving him experience in both civil and common-law jurisdictions - presents the historical-comparative, doctrinal, and economic aspects of trademark and unfair competition conflicts law. The book should be read by any scholar or practitioner interested in the international aspects of intellectual property generally, and trademark and unfair competition law specifically. This title is available as Open Access.


'Tim Dornis' work is a landmark! It makes available a wealth of German and European sources to common lawyers and of US sources to Civil lawyers. It may incite Europeans to rethink whether the emperor's new clothes (i.e. trademarks as IP rights under the country-of-protection principle) are really that stunning. Lastly - and certainly not least - it looks at whether trademark infringements on the internet should call for some international harmonization of the self-restraint requirement.'
