Wildy's Book of the Month: April 2012Francis Gurry's famous work Breach of Confidence, published in 1984, was groundbreaking and invaluable in the field of intellectual property as the first text to synthesise the then burgeoning case law of breach of confidence into a systematic form.
A highly regarded book, it was first point of resort for practitioners and a key source for judges. Alpin, Bentley, Johnson and Malynicz bring us a new edition of this important work, fully updating it in light of the developments since the first edition and adding new material on the history and current relevance of the action, as well as on comparative legal protection of confidential information within Europe.
This second edition offers a near perfect fusion of the academic and the practical elements of breach of confidence which remains true to the immense scholarship of the first edition while imposing the collective stamp of authority of four leading lawyers. It demonstrates both the enduring quality of the original thesis and the current authors' commitment to the highest form of practical scholarship. Huw Beverley-Smith, European Intellectual Property Review
No serious practitioner specialising in this fast-moving area of law can afford to be without this book. The authors deserve to be commended not just for their erudition and industry, but also for the highly ordered manner in which they have been presented the commentary.
