"... this convenient volume updates its coverage of Danish intellectual property law, with continued emphasis on developments and trends connected with electronic and broadband media and the process of internationalisation in this burgeoning area of business and economic law.

The author expertly discusses all legally salient facets of the protection of copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade names, trade secrets and confidential information, utility models, industrial designs, chips, and plant varieties. Due attention is paid to the weight given in Denmark to the ownership and transfer of intellectual property rights, registration procedures, limitations and exemptions, and remedies for infringement. For a broad, reliable understanding of Danish intellectual property law, this new edition of Intellectual Property Law in Denmark is the ideal quick reference book for both practitioners and students".
