Book Review: Concise European Trade Mark Law

There are some books which are essential reading material - this is one of them. Edited by Verena von Bomhard and Alexander von Mühlendahl, Concise European Trade Mark Law covers the key trade mark issues by taking a very simple approach.

The book's primary focus is on the EU Trade Mark Regulation and Trade Mark Directive. It considers each Article in turn and places them in their legal context together with the relevant case law which has affected its interpretation.

What the publisher says
The sweeping changes brought about in 2017 to practice and procedures in European Union trade mark law have precipitated a new edition of this much-relied-upon guide to the field. This is the first book to provide comprehensive guidance to the new EU Trade Mark Regulation, including full details on all aspects of substance and procedure, as well as to the new Trade Mark Directive. 
What’s in this book:
The book is a complete guide to practice in the field, written by distinguished practitioners from a range of European countries, with attention to all aspects of EU trade mark law. 
This new and significantly expanded edition, which builds on the two previous editions of the Concise European Trade Mark and Design Law, includes the full texts of the new Implementing and Delegated Acts – available in no other book – as well as a collection of other texts that are needed in daily practice, such as excerpts from the Rules of Procedure of the General Court, the Paris Convention, the Madrid Protocol and the Nice Agreement, the Nice Classification, the TRIPS Agreement and the Directive on Enforcement of IP Rights. 
How this will help you:
This commentary provides the reader with a concise and straightforward explanation of the principles of law to be drawn from each provision. This helps lawyers to gain insight into the regulations and thereby confidently deal with them on a day-to-day basis. Thus this book serves as a standard work of reference for the daily work of all practitioners (including paralegals) who work with EU trade mark law.
To say that it has been written by experts is an understatement. It is a highly useful book and it is both concise in name and in nature - the image above is almost the same size as the book. Nevertheless a huge amount of information has been crammed into the tiny pages.

  1. I am one of the authors and therefore prefer to be anonymous. But I would like to highlight that the arrival of Alexander von Mühlendahl and the joint effort of Verena von Bomhard as editors make it a remarkable book. The authors are excellent and the text give replies to many of the present questions. Some contributions could still be a bit more detailed, even though it would then be less concise (but more precise).


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.
