New Patent Law and Policy book just launched

The Law Foundation congratulates Professor Susy Frankel (VUW Law School) and Dr Jessica Lai (VUW Business School) on the publication of their new book Patent Law and Policy, funded by the Law Foundation.

Patent Law and Policy addresses two core questions:
– What is the law in New Zealand when it comes to patents
– What is the policy behind the law?

This is the second book published from Professor Frankel’s Law Foundation–funded research project “Intellectual Property Law for a Small Developed Country”.

The first book Test Tubes for Global Intellectual Property Issues: Small Market Economies was released in 2015.
