Product description

This book deals with the core aspects of intellectual property law and covers developing aspects drawing attention internationally and locally.

The growing importance of this area of law both locally and internationally has prompted a number of local academics to pool their knowledge in compiling a book that not only deals with the core aspects of the law but also covers developing aspects that are drawing substantial attention both internationally and locally. This book makes a major contribution to the surveys of intellectual property that already exist.
