The book is very well written and I use it as my primary book in IP. It is comprehensive, easy to navigate and not boring.
I seem to have been rather unlucky with the quality though, as pages started falling out after the first week of usage.
If you are looking for a no brainer book, this book is not it for you as it demands a lot attention to footnotes and having a relevant statute book at hand, especially because the authors will introduce the relevant legislation in the beginning of the chapter but then, at times, not mention the name of that legislation again when citing relevant sections of statute law or articles of regulations. For this reason the book gets four and not five stars from me.
I have found W. Cornish's book on IP a sound alternative, however, the language is not as animated in Cornish and thus that book I use for secondary reading on particular opinions -they make a good pair.
Beware of what statute book you buy. I have found that Blackstone's has left out important legislation that is being cited in most IP law books.

Comprehensive and current sums this book up, really. Bently and Sherman have created a must-have for all students of IP Law. The book covers a wide range of topics, one which I believe would be of use to practitioners as well (albeit, in a more limited sense).

If one has an exam coming up, this book should be more than sufficient (combined of course, with a healthy dose of common sense and hard work). Great purchase, very well pleased with it.

I have recently moved from the first to the second edition of Bently and Sherman, and am delighted to see that it still retains the same quality and breadth as the first edition.
As a text for the aspiring IP Law student, Bently and Sherman would be my first choice. Although not covering every aspect of IP Law (although more than adequately aware of its limitations in this regard), Intellectual Property deals comprehensively with those which it does.
Far easier to read than many of its counterparts, no IP student's library should be without this text!

This is a great book, ideal for anyone interested in IP. The older reviews of this book are now out of date with the 2010 edition. It gives you loads of up todate cases and insight. Very clear, to the point and ideal for students and lawyers. Add this to Cornish and you have everything you could need.

Bently and Sherman, has just handed over to us the Bible on Intellectual Property Law.

Nothing can be that insightful on a subject of Law. Its a guide for Students, Academics, Lawyers and everyone interested in Intellectual Property.

The book is more of british law and in a small quantities with comparison with European community law of which I find it not enough. Also I advice the author to cover things like IP law in connection with competition law

Intellectual Property law is explained very simply and the text is easy to understand. I would recommend the text to anyone studying intellectual property or anyone who wishes to do some general reading in the area.
