              Landmark Cases in Intellectual Property Law (Paperback)

              This volume explores the nature of intellectual property law by looking at particular disputes. All the cases gathered here aim to show the versatile and unstable character of a discipline still searching for landmarks. Each contribution offers an opportunity to raise questions a...bout the narratives that have shaped the discipline throughout its short but profound history. The volume begins by revisiting patent litigation to consider the impact of the Statute of Monopolies (1624). It continues looking at different controversies to describe how the existence of an author's right in literary property was a plausible basis for legal argument, even though no statute expressly mentioned authors' rights before the Statute of Anne (1710). The collection also explores different moments of historical significance for intellectual property law: the first trade mark injunctions; the difficulties the law faced when protecting maps; and the origins of originality in copyright law. Similarly, it considers the different ways of interpreting patent claims in the late nineteenth and twentieth century; the impact of seminal cases on passing off and the law of confidentiality; and more generally, the construction of intellectual property law and its branches in their interaction with new technologies and marketing developments. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of intellectual property law.

              The Landmark Cases series highlights the historical antecedents of what are widely considered to be the leading cases in a discipline, and seeks to provide contexts in which to better understand how and why certain cases came to be regarded as the `Landmark' cases in any given fi...eld. Succession law's long pedigree, near-universal application, immense capacity for human interest stories, somewhat uncertain future in England and Wales, and close connection to demographics make it an ideal candidate for a Landmark Cases volume. The distinguished contributors to this collection consider cases ranging in decision date from 1720 to 2017, and covering issues such as will-making and interpretation, the position of beneficiaries and personal representatives, testamentary promises, and the extent of testamentary freedom in England and Wales and beyond. The cases are relevant not only to scholars and students of succession law per se, but also those working in fields such as tax, trusts, tort and land law. They raise issues as diverse as class, colonialism, familial dynamics, expectations and obligations, mental health, and the proper roles of the legal profession and the welfare state. The collection will provoke much discussion on what makes a `Landmark' case, as well as on the peculiarities and limitations of the case law method.

              Landmark Cases in Intellectual Property Law (Hardback)

              Landmark Cases in the Intellectual Property Law offers sixteen original essays by leading legal scholars and historians. As with the essays in the companion Landmark volumes, each essay takes as its focus a particular case, and analyses that case in its historical or theoretical ...context. Some of the decisions selected in this volume are well-known landmark cases in the discipline. The rest of the cases discussed are decisions whose landmark status have been overlooked or neglected. The cases range from the seventeenth to the twenty-first centuries, and deal with an array of intellectual property doctrines, issues and laws. Some of the essays call for their case to be stripped of or to be given a landmark status, whilst others argue that the study of those cases has more to offer than we have previously appreciated. The particular historical context of these cases, as revealed by the authors, often shows that our current assumptions about the case and what it stands for are either mistaken, or require radical modification. The book also explores several common themes which are fundamental to the development of intellectual property law: for instance, the impact of the Statute of Monopolies (1624), the rise of originality in copyright law, the crystallisation of the action for breach of confidence, and the interaction of trade mark and patent laws with technologies and marketing developments.

              Criminal cases raise difficult normative and legal questions, and are often a consequence of compelling human drama. In this collection, expert authors place leading cases in criminal law in their historical and legal contexts, highlighting their significance both in the past and... for the present. The cases in this volume range from the fifteenth to the twenty-first century. Many of them are well known to modern criminal lawyers and students; others are overlooked landmarks that deserve reconsideration. The essays, often based on extensive and original archival research, range over a wide spectrum of criminal law, covering procedure and doctrine, statute and common law, individual offences and general principles. Together, the essays explore common themes, including the scope of criminal law and criminalisation, the role of the jury, and the causes of change in criminal law
