About National Developments in the Intersection of IPR and Competition Law

This is the third volume in the series Swedish Studies in European Law, produced by the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies, a national network comprised of Swedish universities focusing on recent legal developments within European Union law. In this volume, Swedish researchers with specific interests in European Market law - intellectual property rights, competition and marketing law - have joined forces to review recent Swedish legislation and case-law of particular European interest in national Swedish Courts or the Court of Justice of the European Union ('CJEU'). The volume also includes comments on general EU developments from a Swedish perspective.

The essays focus upon a number of significant recent developments, including, amongst others, an essay on a proposed reform to the Swedish Copyright Act, a report of the recent Swedish decision concerning the Mini-Mag, two different analyses of the future for illicit file sharing following the recent Pirate Bay litigation, and essays on refusal to supply and the new Unfair Commercial Practices Directive and its implementation in Sweden.

“The book under review is certainly recommended to IPRs lawyers and academics. All the essays are not only extremely well researched and informative, but also contain critical comments and thought-provoking arguments. In conclusion, the book offers a unique and accessible overview of the main debates and developments ongoing in Sweden in IP law and represents a good addition to the literature exploring the intersection of domestic and EU law in the field of IP law.” –  Riccardo Sciaudone, Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice, Volume 7, Number 7
