The 7th Edition of the CIPA Guide is a fully updated version of this established work, acknowledged since 1980 as a must-have for any practitioner advising on patents.
Its purpose has remained unchanged since first publication: “The broad aim has been to provide a manual for reference, if not daily, at least whenever any doubt arises on the provisions of the Act or Rules and above all on the practice under them”.
Since publication of the 6th Edition in 2009 the flow of significant new material has been relentless, including revisions to the Patents Rules, the Civil Procedure Rules and EU Regulations and landmark decisions of the UK Courts, the EPO Appeal Boards and the US courts, which is of increasing significance to UK and European practitioners. This new edition fully evaluates and incorporates these developments, helping practitioner's to stay on top of the many changes.
Compiled by a team of 34 professionals including patent attorneys, solicitors and members of the Bar, individually selected for their knowledge of and insight into the subjects to which they contribute, this essential guide gives you all the tools you need to protect the rights of your clients
