"Thomas Cotter in Comparative Patent Remedies has undertaken the formidable, daunting task of describing and comparing the remedies provided in cases of patent infringement for all major patent jurisdictions. Legislative provisions, doctrinal concepts, leading cases, and academic writings from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, and China are analyzed in a format that starts with a brief introduction of the patent system and continues with enforcement structures and remedies of injunctive relief and damages. The chapter on Europe also features a discussion of cross-border litigation. With clear writing, an impressive amount of information, and thorough analysis, Cotter's work is a delightful, stimulating read that will be of great interest to patent judges, litigators, and academics alike."
--Christopher Heath, Boards of Appeal, European Patent Office and former member of the Max Planck Institute, Munich
