Intellectual Property Law in the European Union is the culmination of years of Harris’s exhaustive research and is a guide to policies governing intellectual properties in European Union nations. Developed as a textbook and sourcebook for U.S. law students, this work reviews the gradual, incremental stages of consolidation and the creation of a “common market” in the EU, an occurrence that has led to difficulties in the establishment and enforcement of IP law. Harris, who was involved in primary and secondary legislation as well as the implementation and institutionalization of IP law, cites landmark cases on trademark, patent, and copyright law. This work is a valuable addition to any law library or collection on IP law.
