IP and Other Things

A Collection of Essays and Speeches

By Robin Jacob

Now available in paperback! The Rt Hon Professor Sir Robin Jacob has been a leading member of the Intellectual Property Bar, a High Court judge and, as Lord Justice Jacob, a judge in the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. His primary area of expertise is intellectual property (IP) rights. He chose to leave the Court of Appeal in March 2011 to take up his current position as the Sir Hugh Laddie Chair in intellectual property at University College London. Besides teaching and writing he still sits occasionally in the Court of Appeal, sits as an arbitrator, provides expert evidence, chairs the Advisory Committee on the Appointment and Training of the Judges of the Unified Patent Court, and often advises the UK Government and EU Commission on IP matters. These essays and speeches, selected from his published and unpublished writings and lectures, illustrate the breadth of his learning in IP and other matters. They are written in a straightforward and entertaining style and, in the case of the older essays, include a commentary of what has happened since they were first published. This book will be of interest to any lawyer, law student, or scholar interested in the development of IP law. [Subject: Intellectual Property Law]
