This study presents to the English-speaking legal profession a synthetic picture of the international regime of industrial property, by a method which combines the common-law and the civil-law technique. The first part considers the international regime of industrial property before the constitution of the Industrial Property Union in 1883, as it was governed by the municipal law of various countries and bipartite agreements. The second, and main, part surveys the protection and relation of industrial property at the present time in the Industrial Property Union. In a separate section of this part, the inter-American regime of industrial property under the Pan-American conventions is described. The last part deals with the future development of industrial property and the efforts for the protection of scientific property.
