The overwhelming response of studens, lawyers, judiciary and other users attracted by the past three editions has created an enlarged sense of responsibility. The fourth edition, has been updated keeping with that sense of responsibility and all the new amendments since the last edition. The book is divided into 8 parts
Patents; Trade Marks; Copyright; Designs; Geographical Indications; Semicondurctor Integrated Circuits Layout-Design; Protection of Plant Varieties; and TRIPS.
Latest amendments vide the Patents (Amendment) Rules, 2006 have been duly incorporated in the main text at appropriate places. New case laws have also found a place in the new edition. An effort has been made to make this book as a complete textbook on IPR's and prevent the reader running from pillar to post to update himself.
