Posted on Friday, June 3, 2022

The Centre for Law, Technology and Society is delighted to announce the publication with Emond Publishing of the 3rd edition of Canadian Intellectual Property Law: Cases and Materials, a leading casebook co-authored by CLTS Faculty Member Dr. Teresa Scassa.

Canadian Intellectual Property Law: Cases and Materials (3rd Edition) offers a comprehensive analysis of foundational concepts including copyright, patents, trademarks, industrial designs, passing off, and confidentiality. This casebook contains extracts from leading Canadian cases and IP legislation, paired with clarifying commentary and discussion questions.  

Chapters from the previous edition have been revised to reflect recent case law and regulatory changes. The third edition includes expanded discussion on the scope and coverage of IP protection in response to recent developments in the field of artificial intelligence and the inequitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. It also includes comprehensive coverage of Canada’s intellectual property law within the context of Indigenous legal traditions, addressing the need for inclusivity and reform.  

This collaborative text is a valuable teaching tool that bridges gaps found in similar texts by addressing the core areas of IP law within a single resource. 


The book is available for order with Emond Publishing
