This casebook begins with a brief description of the theory behind the book and its contents, detailing first the emerging issues not yet ripe for inclusion in the book. The authors then provide a basic overview of intellectual property, with a comparison of approaches taken in national and regional systems. The book also discusses international public law, including treaties, and the international intellectual property obligations flowing therefrom. There is also extensive discussion on the international protection of intellectual property with respect to patents, copyright and related rights, trademark and unfair competition, trade secrets or confidential information, and industrial designs.
