Taiwan has made significant efforts in the last five years to overhaul its IP system according to international standards and since January 2002 has been a member to WTO/TRIPS. After frequent revisions of the IP laws in the 1990s in order to gear up for WTO accession, the legal system has now reached a certain level of consolidation that makes publication both timely and advisable. The more so, as there is no comprehensive book on the Taiwanese IP system published in English. This volume is written by leading Taiwanese academics and practitioners in the IP field and has been edited by the Max Planck Institute. All areas of IP are covered in around 200 pages and the appendix contains the relevant statutory provisions. Importance is attached to the practice of the courts and IP offices and to matters related to enforcement. An introductory chapter puts the IP system in the context of Taiwanese law in general. This book will appeal to practitioners and academics alike. The book is part of the Max Planck Series on Asian Intellectual Property Law.
