  • Description: Beginning with a discussion of current international intellectual property institutions and ending with a study of contemporary border enforcement issues, this book takes the user through the major treaties and a comparative discussion of the critical areas of patent law and practice. Topics covered include patentable subject matter, prior art, inventive step, enablement and disclosure, infringement, remedies, and competition policy. The approach of the book and its materials would complement intellectual property law courses at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels as well as serve as the focal casebook for a stand-alone course on international patent law.
