    Modern Intellectual Property Law combines coverage of each intellectual property right granted for creations of the mind into a thoughtful, unified textbook. Deconstructing the fundamental topics into short, clear sections separated by subheadings throughout, Colston and Galloway's text is the ideal student companion to this intriguing area of the law.

    This new edition has been completely revised to bring it up to date with the latest debate and changes to the law. All significant recent developments are covered including the continuing controversy over patents for computer-implemented inventions and biotechnological inventions, the House of Lords' developments of patent law, the ECJ jurisprudence relating to trade mark dilution and comparative advertising, as well as the database right, and international efforts to reconcile copyright with peer-to-peer file sharing. This text also discusses the ongoing effort to achieve an appropriate balance between intellectual property and competition law in order to protect market competition while retaining key incentives to drive the process of innovation.

    Written for students, this accessible and comprehensive textbook provides the perfect starting point for anyone studying intellectual property law in the UK.

  • Introduction; Justification; The Patent; Patentable Subject Matter; Patentable Inventions; Infringement, Validity and Revocation; Breach of Confidence; Copyright Principles, Copyright Works and Related Rights; The Subsistence and Substance of Copyright and Related Rights; Infringement of Copyright and Defences; Employing Copyright: Permitted Copyright Uses, Dealings in Works and Competition; Moral Rights; Design Rights; Passing Off; Registered Trade Marks; Trade Mark Infringement and Challenges to Trade Marks; Property and Dealings in Marks and Domain Name Disputes; Image Protection; Enforcement.

  • Catherine Colston is a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Strathclyde. She teaches undergraduate classes in Issues in Intellectual Property (Hons) and Intellectual Property and her research spans both Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law.

    Jonathan Galloway is a Lecturer in Law at Newcastle University and an Attorney at law in New York. His teaching and research focuses primarily on UK and EC Competition Law.

  • "It explains difficult concepts in a way students can understand, is well structured and develops each area in a logical way. Its coverage is at the right level for undergraduates and postgraduates who are struggling with concepts being neither too simplistic not too detailed." Colin R. Davies, Director Intellectual Property Law Unit, University of Glamorgan

    "Extremely well written and comprehensive." James Griffin, Lecturer in Law, University of Exeter
