The Modern Law of Trade Marks (5th Edition, 2016); Now ‘Morcom on Trade Marks’ (6th Edition, 2021) by Christopher Morcom KC, Ashley Roughton & Tom St Quintin

This comprehensive guide on trade mark law in the UK and the EU enables practitioners to provide clients with effective advice with the best possible support and authority. It includes detailed analysis of important UK and European legislation, decisions of courts in the UK and of the CJEU and the General Court, with in-depth commentary on the complexities of the Trade Marks Act 1994 and the CTM Regulation. Chapters dealing with passing off, criminal aspects of trade mark law, and the internet have been rewritten, and a new section covers the recently established Company Names Tribunal.  The book includes up-to-date versions of the Trade Marks Act 1994, the CTM Regulation, and covers the Madrid Protocol and its implementation, and relevant provisions of the Paris Convention and TRIPS.  Also covered, with relevant texts, are the Comparative Advertising Directive, and the Regulation and implementing Regulation on the Protection of Geographical Indications and Designations of Origin.

‘New Law Journal’ says:

“Every firm which does some trade marks law needs a good detailed text book on trade marks law and this one certainly fits the bill.”
