Contemporary Intellectual Property: Law and Policy offers a unique perspective on intellectual property law, unrivalled amongst IP textbooks available today. Beyond providing an up-to-date account of intellectual property law, the text examines the complex policies that inform and guide modern IP law at the domestic (including Scottish), European and international levels, giving the reader a true insight into the discipline and the shape of things to come. The focus is on contemporary challenges to intellectual property law and policy and the reader is encouraged to engage critically both with the text and the subject matter.
Carefully developed to ensure that the complexities of the subject are addressed in a clear and approachable manner, the extensive use of practical examples, exercises and visual aids throughout the text enliven the subject and stimulate the reader.

Review from previous edition: "Contemporary Intellectual Property: Law and Policy is impressively written by being both clear and accessible. Its layout also helps towards its accessibility with thought-provoking questions and issues being raised throughout the text: this allows the reader to critically evaluate the work. Similarly, the use of diagrams and pictures is particularly helpful for a topic like intellectual property." --Student Law Journal
