Reviews of previous editions:
Now in its third edition this comprehensive text whic is targeted primarily at students will also benefit lawyers needing an up-to-date reference book on intellectual property law. Its strength lies in its currency (1 January 2008), depth of research and comprehensive coverage of this large body of laws , cases and regulations.
Australian Intellectual Property Law Bulletin, Vol 21 (6), December 2008
It is always an ambitious project to cover the field of all intellectual property rights in a single volume. Reynolds and Stoianoff have managed this challenge, and the book covers copyright, patents and trade mark law in detail, but also provides an overview of designs, plant breeders' rights and circuit layout rights. The book will be a useful companion for practising lawyers seeking a clear answer to core IP laws and principles.
Carol Burnton and Julian Lincoln, Law Institute Journal of Victoria, October 2008
This text continues to constitute an outstanding and comprehensive collection of intellectual property law cases, relevant discussion and, at a practical level, a comprehensive source well suited to professional use.
