The sixth edition of the Butterworths Intellectual Property Handbook has just been published. This book is a compendium of international treaties and texts, European Union directives and regulations and UK national laws pertaining to intellectual property. Although it is styled a “handbook” it is hardly hand-sized, weighing in at a mammoth 2,045 pages. This book, for which IPKat co-master Jeremy Phillips is Consultant Editor, is current to November 2003. With a striking purple cover (to help you locate it wherever you’ve put it down), it’s a snip at just £96.
