Kerly's Law of Trade Marks and Trade Names has provided expert guidance on all aspects of UK trade mark law since 1894. Through a mix of insightful commentary and up-to-date analysis of case law and legislation from the UK and Europe, it is the reference for the provision of clear and authoritative advice on trade mark law.
The 16th edition saw a major update with the inclusion of three new chapters on topics including the average consumer, Brexit, and the defining characteristics of trade marks. It also analyses the highly significant European trade mark reforms – the greatest change to trade mark law for 20 years.
This supplement captures all the developments in the law since the 16th Edition was prepared, including a review of all UK caselaw and the key judgments emanating from the General Court and the CJEU, as well as certain influential cases from overseas. The Skykick case is covered in full. It includes up to date versions of the Trade Marks Act and Rules, following the implementation of the 2015 Trade Mark Directive and other amendments. It also includes all the relevant EU Exit regulations which come into force on exit day.
