Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law is a complete exploration of the relationship between information technology and intellectual property laws a very wide-ranging and complex, ever changing area of law.

It provides up-to-date coverage and analysis of the intellectual property laws applicable to all forms of computer software. placing the law in the context of computer use examining copyright, database rights, patents, trade marks, design rights and the law of confidence.

There have been numerous cases before the Court of Justice for the European Union (CJEU) recently, in particular involving the use of trade marks on the Internet, and these are analysed in detail with the implications of the judgments explained in a practical and accessible way.

Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law includes developments surrounding ISPs (Internet Service Providers), for example injunctions against ISPs both in the UK and before the Court of Justice of the European Union, and coverage of the Digital Economy Act provisions.

It can either be read from cover to cover as a thorough introduction to the subjects addressed or be used as a very useful starting point for a specialist practitioner faced with a particular problem on a particular case. With this in mind Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law is an essential addition to any an IT and IP practitioner's bookshelf as well as a useful textbook for non-specialists as well as advanced undergraduate and taught postgraduate IT and IP courses.
