‘Irene Calboli and Jacques de Werra have put together a comprehensive look at trademark transactions throughout the world. Essential reading for specialists in international trademark law and for anyone who wants to understand more about laws other than their own.‘
– Mark A. Lemley, William H. Neukom Professor, Stanford Law School, US
‘Commercial transactions involving trademarks, especially across borders, have received scant in-depth attention in law literature. With insights from the emerging markets of Brazil, China and India to the EU and USA via Australia and Japan, this book deals with the multifarious aspects. The reader will finish it not only with their knowledge greatly enhanced but convinced that, at least in this field, the world most certainly is not flat.‘
– David Llewelyn, Singapore Management University and King’s College London, UK
