Authored as a collaboration between Spoor & Fisher and the Anton Mostert Chair of Intellectual Property at Stellenbosch University, Dean and Dyer's Digest of Intellectual Property Law presents a substantial, engaging and applied first course in intellectual property law. The text provides a thorough and accessible introduction to the broad spectrum of intellectual property law in South Africa, including intellectual property in the digital environment. The text brings the value of practical expertise together with an enquiring, analytical and critical approach, resulting in a dynamic and indispensable reference. The text offers a clear pedagogical structure, which supports learning and develops independent, critical and reflective engagement with the subject matter. Ancillary materials are available to support teaching and learning. Dean and Dyer's Digest of Intellectual Property Law is suited as core course material for students who are studying intellectual property law as a module of the LLB degree, or at postgraduate level. It is also a useful resource for legal practitioners who may wish to clarify new or foundational principles of the field.
