This comprehensive two-volume collection of leading articles in trademark and unfair competition law spans almost a century and three continents, bringing together the most influential and significant scholarly work in this exciting field.

These essential volumes, with a new and original introduction by two leading contemporary writers, are organised in a way that highlights essential concepts and will be invaluable both for those taking their first steps in the area and for those seeking to re-acquaint themselves with the classics.
‘This assembly of writings by scholars, lawyers, and judges on the law and policy of trademarks and unfair competition presents a rich offering that ranges across time, place, and perspective. The challenge of revealing the subject’s full scope to the interested tyro and yet making experts wonder how they had somehow overlooked this or that critical article is fully met. Professors Dinwoodie and Janis and their publisher deserve thanks for bringing this treasure trove within reach of all with an interest in why and how brands are regulated.’
