This authoritative text provides a picture of how Australian intellectual property law has developed as a distinctly Australian body of law during the century since Federation. The book takes a selection of key intellectual property law cases and tells their stories, situating each case in its social context, as well as providing factual details about the arguments made in each case and the evidence adduced. Landmarks in Australian Intellectual Property Law offers a closer legal analysis of selected cases, many of which have been central to the framing of Australian intellectual property law. It provides a fuller sense of each case as revealing and influencing wider understandings and practices. Landmarks in Australian Intellectual Property Law is a valuable resource for academics, researchers, practitioners and judges in Australia and throughout the common law world.
