New Edition of "Patent Enforcement Worldwide" Due Out in October

Here is the link to Hart Publishing Company's webpage for "Patent Enforcement Worldwide, Third Edition," edited by Christopher Heath, Anselm Kamperman Sanders, and Giovanni Casucci.  Here is the book description:
This book features 15 country reports on the patent enforcement practice of the world’s most litigated countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Litigation strategies for both right owners and alleged infringers are explained against the background of case law on: types of action, standing to sue, jurisdiction, obtaining evidence, provisional and final measures, trial practice, types of infringement, remedies and counterclaims, costs and issues of retrial, threats and wrongful enforcement. Special chapters cover the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Agreement provisions on enforcement, enforcement issues in the European Community, international cross-border litigation and border measures.
The reports are written by patent practitioners or academic experts in the field, and the homogenous structure of the country reports allows for an easy identification of best practices and strategic considerations on the choice of jurisdiction.
I found the second edition, which came out in 2005, to be a very helpful resource in preparing my own book on comparative patent remedies, and I am very much looking forward to seeing the third edition in print.  I also played a small role in the new edition, by coauthoring with Christopher Heath the first chapter, titled "Comparative Overview and the TRIPs Enforcement Provisions."
