If our clients, friends or visitors wish to obtain a copy of 20/20, please email Editor jtessensohn@shupat.gr.jp.

The 21 scholarly articles in 20/20 celebrated the arrival of the 21st Century. 20/20 is a collection of 21 articles covering all aspects of IP law from the world's leading IP practitioners and it addresses patent, trademark and litigation topics from a perspective that will be of concern to serious readers of international IP law. 20/20 represents the dynamic and cognitive views of well-regarded IP practitioners in Japan, the US and Europe.
