Another new Sweet & Maxwell title to hit the bookshops this year is the sixth edition of Intellectual Property Law and Taxation, by Nigel A. Eastaway, Richard J. Gallafent and Victor A. F. Dauppe. This hardback edition, consisting of nearly 800 pages, “is addressed primarily to those who wish to use intellectual property law and taxation for legitimate ends”. The IPKat hopes that this honest declaration does not unduly restrict the sales potential of this popular work, which features some enjoyable and highly plausible Case Studies. Anyone whose eyes glaze over on seeing detailed analysis of tax law can thus take refuge in the tales of Albert Potcher, bricklayer extraordinary, the pop group Brighton Rock, the conductor/composer Yuri Rakovsky and Nuttabun “”Fast Food for the Third Millennium”). The authors bring to bear their blend of business nous, intellectual property expertise and accounting skills in a seamless web of valuable tax teaching, current to July 2003.

The price (£160) for a specialist book on a subject of this nature is no longer dear and, for any reader who uses it profitably, the IPKat imagines that it will pay for itself. If you are an IP creator (or advise one) and generate income on which you wish to minimise your tax liability, read it!
