We wrote this book because we find the subject of intellectual property to be a fascinating one. We hope that through this textbook students are drawn into the interconnected web of copyrights, patents, trade marks, designs, and trade secrets to discover some of the same fascination we have found. Our aim has been to explain intellectual property law through carefully-crafted practical scenarios at the start of each chapter, bringing this technical subject to life in a meaningful and engaging way for students. Within each chapter we then explain the law with reference back to this scenario, as well as offering a response to the scenario at the end of each chapter.

We are grateful to be able to draw on material from Helen Norman’s Intellectual Property Law published by OUP. When Helen retired from writing this title, there was an opportunity to continue Helen’s work whilst introducing this practical, problem-based approach. We believe the approach we have developed in this textbook achieves our aim of providing a textbook for students that is thematically rich yet centred on practical scenarios.
