A Practical Approach to Trade Mark Law by Amanda Michaels and Andrew Norris
Hogarth Chambers is pleased to announce the publication in March 2010 of the new edition of this well established text, which is now part of the renowned Oxford University Press 'A Practical Approach' series.
A Practical Approach to Trade Mark Law provides a comprehensive, digestible and approachable introduction to trade mark law, explaining the technicalities of the law in plain, accessible language.
This 4th edition takes into account many important recent decisions of the ECJ, the CFI and the English Courts, as well as important legislative changes, the new rules on comparative and misleading advertising, the change to the rules on relative rights, and significant amendments to practice at the UKIPO.
While the focus of the book is primarily on UK law, it also deals with the acquisition and protection of Community Trade Marks, and procedure at OHIM, drawing comparisons between trade marks in the UK, and Community Trade Marks where appropriate.
The book remains highly practical throughout, comprising discussion on topics such as the absolute and relative tests for registrability, registration practice and procedure, revocation, assignment and licensing as well as complete coverage of the law on infringement, passing off and remedies.
Readership: The book will be an indispensable companion for students seeking to qualify as trade mark or patent attorneys, and trainee solicitors specialising in intellectual property law and trade mark law in particular. It will also be of interest to intellectual property lawyers more generally as a first point of reference on points of UK trade mark law, as well as students of intellectual property law, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
