This is the fourth edition of The Trademarks Law Review. The key objectives for each of the jurisdictions included in the publication remain the same: to provide, first, an annual snapshot of trademark law which includes a summary of the key legal provisions, second, a review of recent developments and trends from the courts, and third, an informed view of areas of expected legal activity and legislative change going forward.
