McCarthy Tétrault Lawyers Publish Important Intellectual Property Law Casebook
Toronto, February 5, 2010 — McCarthy Tétrault partners Barry Sookman and Steven Mason draw on their extensive expertise in intellectual property cases to shed light on this complex area of the law in their newest book, Intellectual Property Law in Canada: Cases and Commentary.
The textbook provides law students, law professors, librarians and firm lawyers with important insights on the diverse laws that protect the types of intangible property considered intellectual property.
This is Barry Sookman’s fifth textbook and second collaboration with Steven Mason. Authoritative Canadian and international guides consistently rank Mr. Sookman among Canada’s top information technology and intellectual property lawyers. He currently co-chairs McCarthy Tétrault’s Technology Law Group, and is past head of its Internet and Electronic Commerce Group and its Intellectual Property Group.
Steven Mason is one of McCarthy Tétrault’s most experienced trial and appellate lawyers. His practice as part of McCarthy Tétrault’s Litigation Group includes all areas of litigation, with a particular focus on intellectual property and related disputes.
Published by Carswell, Intellectual Property Law in Canada: Cases and Commentary can be purchased for $109 at Carswell’s online bookstore or by calling 1-877-750-9041.
