In the age of information, the ability to protect a client's rights in intellectual property can be as important as the creation of that property itself. Like a right without a remedy, a proprietary asset without legal recognition may be no asset at all. So, while patent applications or industrial design issues may be best left to intellectual property specialists, a sound appreciation of the law and the issues shouldn't be.

Newly revised and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Laws of Canada – Patents, Trade Secrets and Industrial Designs (2020 Reissue) is the ideal source for authoritative commentary on this always important subject. Authored by two of Canada's leading intellectual property experts, it clearly delineates the law governing patents of invention in Canada, as codified by the Patent Act, as well as the law pertaining to trade secrets and industrial design.
