PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Now in its twentieth edition, Terrell on the Law of Patents has been the leading authority on UK patent law since 1884. It provides the most detailed and authoritative commentary on law, practice and procedure – comprehensively covering every stage from application to infringement. It advises on the fundamental aspects of patent law as well as more specialist issues such as FRAND and SPCs. Regularly cited in court, Terrell continues to set the standard by which others are compared and is an essential reference to keep you up to date with the very latest patent law developments.

  • Includes the most significant and relevant case law from all levels of the UK Courts, the European Patent Office, the UK Patent Office and the Appeals Boards.
  • Explains the application process for UK national patents and European patents.
  • Addresses the issue of entitlement and answers the key questions: who may apply for a patent and who may be granted a patent?
  • Discusses how to apply for a supplementary protection certificate, the conditions for granting SPCs and their effects.
  • Covers FRAND licensing, undertakings and the nature and scope of obligations.
  • Outlines the grounds for revocation as defined by the Patents Act 1977.
  • Looks at different types of invalidity including lack of novelty, obviousness and insufficiency.
  • Clarifies the principles of patent infringement to ascertain whether or not there has been an infringement, as well as outlining statutory exceptions and other defences.
  • Discusses actions for infringement and looks at the parties involved, claims forms, trial procedure and remedies.
  • Commentary on second medical use claims, human genome sciences and central amendments to patents.
  • Explains compulsory licenses and licenses of right.
  • Includes a new chapter on plausibility, discussing the criterion for a valid patent claim and addressing the questions: what is the standard of plausibility and what must be rendered plausible?
  • Another new chapter on defences to infringement, examining the distinction between statutory and non-statutory defences as well as infringement with respect to the European Patent Convention, Patent Co-operation Treaty and Community Patent Convention.
