This major Handbook provides a comprehensive research source for patent protection in three major jurisdictions: the United States, Europe and Japan. Leading patent scholars and practitioners join together to give an innovative comparative analysis both of fundamental issues such as patentability, examination procedure and the scope of patent protection, and current issues such as patent protection for industry standards, computer software and business methods. Keeping in mind the important goal of world harmonization, the contributing authors challenge current systems and propose necessary changes for promoting innovation. Providing useful tips for practitioners to protect their intellectual assets in technologies effectively in the global market, this Handbook will be of great interest to legal scholars and students, as well as lawyers and patent attorneys.

`The editor of Patent Law and Theory must be congratulated for assembling a concentration of sheer patent law erudition and scholarship. The title is a noteworthy compilation of 26 well-written, remarkably accessible and thought-provoking essays that goes to great lengths in charting the contours of contemporary thought over the "the world's oldest regularly established property right". . . it manages to accomplish an ambitious endeavour of providing a comprehensive view of prevailing issues in the field of patent law and other related fields. . . the interested patent law reader will have much to gain from the fecund material found in the large majority of the title's essays. The world's corpus of patent law research is richer with the publication of this title.' -- John A. Tessensohn, European Intellectual Property Review
