About the Author Dr Peter J Groves, LLB, MA, PhD, MITMA, Solicitor
This book provides a self-contained guide for every student of intellectual property law. It gives a comprehensive view of UK patent, copyright and design law, together with the law of confidentiality and passing off. Topography rights, rights in performances and plant breeding rights are also dealt with. In each case, legislative initiatives from the European Community are discussed in detail. Much of our intellectual property law already comes from this source, and domestic legislation is increasingly harmonised among Member States. Where appropriate, comparisons are drawn with other jurisdictions.
