RRP $544.99

Over ten years after the beginning of the Community Registered Designs system of the European Union (EU), the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) and European courts continue to grapple with many of the new legal concepts introduced, making this a complex and fluctuating area of law. This new edition of the highly-respected English-language text offers a concise, accessible and highly readable volume covering the complete design law of the European Union.

It offers a concise history of the legislation's development and aims, tracing the introduction of fundamental changes to the protection of industrial and ornamental designs throughout the EU. This is followed by a detailed and comprehensive examination of the interpretations provided by the OHIM, Court of Justice and General Court, and the Community Design Courts of EU Member States. The book quotes primary legal provisions in context, supported by extensive citation of case law from the OHIM and many European jurisdictions.

Chapters cover topics including the definition of terms, the system of courts and tribunals with jurisdiction for Community Design disputes, overlap with other intellectual property rights, exclusions from protection, the unification of design rights across the EU, the right to the Community Design, assessment and invalidity of prior design and novelty arguments, the procedure of the OHIM, infringement and applicable defenses, jurisdictional issues, and the Design Directive.

European Design Law: A Practitioner's Guide is an essential reference text for practitioners throughout the European Community.


The Duty To Obey The Law

RRP $266.99

The question 'Why should I obey the law?' introduces a contemporary puzzle that is as old as philosophy itself. The puzzle is especially troublesome if we think of cases in which breaking the law is not otherwise wrongful, and in which the chances of getting caught are negligible. Philosophers from Socrates to H.L.A. Hart have struggled to give reasoned support to the idea that we do have a general moral duty to obey the law but, more recently, the greater number of learned voices has expressed doubt that there is any such duty, at least as traditionally conceived.


Public Environmental Law In The European Union And The United States

RRP $866.99

This volume presents an overview of public environmental law in the European Union and the United States of America. It focusses on constitutional and administrative environmental law but also includes other areas of law such as criminal and private law (in as far as these are relevant to the understanding of public environmental law).

The book offers a comparative introduction, by editors and native authors, to the most important aspects of environmental law (prevention of pollution). It thus aspires to contribute to both 'transboundary' understanding of different regimes for Environmental Law and to a greater co-operation between different international and European partners in their strive towards more adequate (legal) modes of protection and improvement of the environment.

For the purpose of the use of this book in education, research and legal practice, the contributions to the book are all based on one and the same format, thus making it more accessible for its readers. The final chapter offers comparative remarks by the editors.
