Canadian Intellectual Property Law: Cases and Materials, 2nd Edition offers a thorough understanding of foundational concepts such as copyright, patents, trademarks, industrial designs, passing off, and confidentiality. This casebook contains extracts from leading Canadian cases and IP legislation, paired with commentary and discussion questions. This approach ensures students will be prepared to engage in the policy debates that surround this important and evolving area of law.

Chapters from the previous edition have been revised to address both statutory amendments and cases handed down by various courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada. Coverage of digital copyright has also been made more substantial in response to the rise of digital content creation and consumption, with additional attention paid to trademark issues in the online context.

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