Author Notes

The reviewer was formerly a legal adviser to the UK Patent Office and worked on, amongst other things, the implementation of the Information Society Directive (2001/29/EC) and the implementation and ratification of the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty. In addition, he drafted the consultation version of what was to become the Patents Rules 2007. However, the views expressed in this review regarding the implementation of European obligations in the United Kingdom and the scope of provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 are those of the reviewer and not of the Intellectual Property Office, the government (past or present) or anyone else. The reviewer is also one of the authors of the Modern Law of Patents (2nd edn, LexisNexis 2010) the sister volume to the Modern Law of Copyright. Unusually for a book review, the reviewer would like to thank Professor Lionel Bently and Ashley Roughton for their comments on an earlier draft of this review.
