European Intellectual Property Law

Critical Concepts in Intellectual Property Law series

Edited by Jan Rosén, Professor of Private Law, Stockholm University, Sweden and ATRIP President 2009–2011

This volume thoroughly covers and systematically displays the three main areas of intellectual property law – patents, trade marks and copyright – without leaving other rights of the intellectual property family aside, as it also explores geographical indications, industrial designs, trade secrets and databases. The book offers a full and complete picture of European intellectual property law, discussing the treatment of intrinsic issues on harmonization, transborder disputes, collectiveness and individualization in the different fields of intellectual property law.

‘A very useful collection of exemplary published articles for every reader who wants to obtain an easy overview and to become more familiar with the whole area of intellectual property in the European legal framework.’
– Thomas Dreier, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

‘If you are an IP practitioner or adviser wishing to familiarize yourself with, say, a wider spectrum of contemporary thinking on European intellectual property law, this book, a recent title from Edward Elgar Publishing Limited, offers an impressive overview.’
– The Barrister Magazine
