Bibliographical note

New Research Collection

European Intellectual Property Law.

Edited by Jan Rosén, Stockholm University and former ATRIP President.

This one volume collection thoroughly covers and systematically displays the three main areas of Intellectual Property (IP) Law - Patents, Trademarks and Copyright - without leaving other rights of the IP family aside, it also explores geographical indications, industrial designs, trade secrets and databases. The collection offers a full and complete picture of European IP Law, discussing the treatment of intrinsic issues on harmonization, transborder disputes, collectiveness and individualization in the different fields of IP law.

With an original introduction by the editor, this book has been carefully designed to offer law students as well as practitioners a valuable instrument to understand contemporary IP law within the EU.

28 Articles, dating from 1994 to 2014. Contributors include: G.B. Dinwoodie, C. Geiger, A. Firth, R.M. Hilty, H.C. Jehoram, A. Kur, S. von Lewinsky, G. Van Overwalle & T. Minssen.
