Canadian Intellectual Property Law: Cases and Materials, 3rd Edition offers a comprehensive analysis of foundational concepts including copyright, patents, trademarks, industrial designs, passing off, and confidentiality. This casebook contains extracts from leading Canadian cases and IP legislation, paired with clarifying commentary and discussion questions. This approach allows students to test their comprehension and prepares them to engage in policy debates surrounding this important and evolving area of law.
Chapters from the previous edition have been revised to reflect recent case law and regulatory changes. The third edition includes expanded discussion on the scope and coverage of IP protection in response to recent developments in the field of artificial intelligence and the inequitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. It also includes comprehensive coverage of Canada’s intellectual property law within the context of Indigenous legal traditions, addressing the need for inclusivity and reform.
This collaborative text is a valuable teaching tool that bridges gaps found in similar texts by addressing the core areas of IP law within a single resource.
