Rea of Intellectual Property Law for the title see below at section Assignment criteria”
The title is: Protecting Intellectual Property presents the challenge of balancing competing interests: the need to have incentives for the creation of useful industrial and cultural products; the need not to unduly restrict the creative and productive activities of others and the need for fair access by the public”.
Analyse the extent to which intellectual property law has balanced these competing interests appropriately.
The writer must refer to judicial and statutory authority to support the arguments and to the work of authors prominent in the fields selected for discussion. The main focus of the work should be on British law although references to appropriate examples and arguments based on international law, european union law, or other domestic jurisdictions could be made.
The witer must also refer to at least four of the following intellectual property law areas: patents, copyright, trade marks, passing off, trade secrecy/confidnece and industrial design law. Reasonably equal treatment must be given to each area used, although they need not to refer to each area in regard to every argumetn whoich they wish to make.
Also, the essay should be structured in such a way as an attempt to deal with the title in a way which integrates the areas chosen for consideration rather than treating them in different sections as several mini-essays. Also, the writer must produce reasoned argument and analysis, rather than merely describing the general content of the areas chosen.
Also, the level of comprehension and analysis of the question must reflect a 2:1 essay. Therefore, the essay mustreflect the breadth of knowledge of the relevant law and theory, the level of accurate application of well selceted relvant law, secondary sources and theory and please make sure that it consitutes evidene of articulate, reflective and convincing analysis rather than description!
Lastly, please note plagiarism!!!!
Standard footnotes and references from books, journals, Lord Judgments, cases, articles, internet sources, etc.
The writer may use whatever sources they consider most appropriate as long as they consitute evidence of thorough research.
