Incorporating the latest developments in IP law, Intellectual Property Protection and Enforcement reviews each of the principal forms of intellectual property right available in the United Kingdom in turn, describing the nature of the right itself and explaining:

How rights arise or can be obtained
How rights can be exploited
What is necessary to protect rights from erosion or loss
What actions will constitute infringement of a right, under either civil (enforced by the owner) or criminal (enforced by public authorities) law
What remedies are available to the owner of the right, once infringement has been proved.

Each chapter can be read on its own for convenient reference, and the introduction to each chapter also makes it clear where awareness of another section may be useful.
