Intellectual property has become the new wealth of the late-20th century. In this important book, David Vaver provides a lively examination of the three fields of Canadian intellectual property law, copyrights, patents, and trade-marks. No other Canadian text combines analyses of all three of these fields in one volume.
Intellectual Property Law is written in non-technical language and answers the following questions: What is protected? Who owns it? What are the owner's rights? What are the user's rights? Current issues and concerns including genetic engineering, the Internet, and the most recent amendments to the Copyright Act are also examined. Finally, there is a chapter on the management and enforcement of intellectual property rights and a concluding chapter that looks at the broader legal and policy implications of intellectual property law.
