Carefully authored by Justine Pila, this significantly revised and expanded third edition of Catherine Seville’s classic text, presents a thorough and detailed treatise on EU intellectual property (IP) law, taking into account the many developments in legislation and case law since the second edition.

As well as setting out the legal framework for the main IP rights – copyright, patents, designs, trademarks, and related rights – the book examines the enforcement of IP rights, and the relationship of IP with the EU’s rules on the free movement of goods and competition. It also addresses the increasingly global exploitation of IP, while harmonisation remains partial, even at the EU level.

This authoritative reference work is a rigorous and precise account of these complex and technical fields. It will be an essential resource for both practitioners and scholars in the field of IP.

Key Features:

• Significantly updated and expanded since the second edition
• Precise and eloquent examination of all IP rights in the EU
• Coverage of the interaction between EU, National and International laws
• A key reference work for practitioners and academics
Critical Acclaim
‘The late Catherine Seville was a wonderfully meticulous yet wide-ranging and innovative scholar of intellectual property law. This book on European Union IP law, treating the subject as a whole in its own right, is characteristic of her contribution, and now, sensitively edited and extended by Justine Pila, continues superbly to combine overview with critical comment and analysis as both EU and IP law undergo some fundamental changes.’
– Hector L. MacQueen, Emeritus Professor, University of Edinburgh, UK
