IT'S BIG, IT'S FAT ..

...it's the second edition of Intellectual Property Law by Lionel Bently and Brad Sherman. Published this summer by Oxford University Press. With more than 1,200 pages (inclusive of prelims and index), this popular text book looks set to capitalise on the success of the first edition. Bently, who has taken up the Herchel Smith Chair in Intellectual Property Law at Cambridge, and Sherman, a Professor at Griffith University, Brisbane, have combined to produce a work which is surprisingly accessible, despite its detail and its erudition. The text also leads the reader gently from "pure" IP law to adjacent areas of interest such as competition law. Students will enjoy the clear and helpful explanations of the law, while practitioners will appreciate the depth and quality of the referenced source materials. Well done, Lionel and Brad!

  1. As an undergraduate I found the first edition somewhat daunting, but got along with it towards the end of the year. I must say that I'm impressed with the quality of the slightly slimmer second edition. The references are what make this such a good textbook.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
