Cases, Materials and Commentary on Singapore Intellectual Property Law is the first book of its kind on the subject. The authors have curated extracts from both legislation and cases before the courts and IPOS to trace and explain the development and current state of intellectual property law in Singapore, as well as to offer a comprehensive summary of the courts’ approach on important aspects of a field of law critical to the future development of Singapore and its economy.
Each intellectual property right is dealt with in turn in a separate chapter, with particular focus on the Big Three (patents, copyright and trade marks) but also treating the common law actions for confidential information and passing off as well as the lesser known rights such as designs. In addition, litigation and remedies are given their own chapters.
Cases, Materials and Commentary on Singapore Intellectual Property Law is designed to complement existing textbooks and provide practitioners and students alike with an essential guide to intellectual property law in Singapore.
