The Canadian Copyright/Industrial Designs Benchbook is based on the series of electronic textbooks for the Canadian judiciary that were created jointly by the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Specialty Committee in Intellectual Property Law and the National Judicial Institute. Electronic Benchbooks were a 21st century initiative that made textbooks on Canadian law in electronic form available online to all judges across Canada. A logical evolution of the IP Benchbooks was to have them published so that they could be made available to the Canadian bar. Some of the most senior and well regarded IP lawyers in Canada have authored or co-authored chapters and have brought to bear their tremendous experience and analytical skills to produce a meaningful interpretation of this sometimes complex and confusing area of law. An essential text for new members of the intellectual property law bar and those seeking to refocus their skills of the fundamental legal and business realities of patent law practice.
