Although the level of harmonization of European trade mark law is currently more advanced than other areas of IP, the effect of technological development - in particular the implications of the Internet - should have even further impact upon the law, both in the UK and Europe. To help the practitioner keep abreast of these developments, the third edition of this established text has been revised and expanded. Including coverage of all recent developments and case law that have occurred since the last edition, the work is full of useful examples and takes a practical case-study approach. An accompanying CD-ROM containing useful appendices is also included.
