This chapter presents European intellectual property law as a case study in private law harmonisation. It first outlines the international legal framework, which consists of international agreements such as the Paris and Berne Conventions and the TRIPS Agreement. Then it sets out some basic features of EU law in the area of intellectual property: its sources, its historical development, the EU competences in this field after the Lisbon Treaty and the impact of European intellectual property law on the law of the member states, in particular the preliminary ruling procedure as provided by Article 267 TFEU.

Keywords:   Intellectual property, harmonisation, Paris Convention, Berne Convention, TRIPS Agreement, Treaty of Lisbon, Article 118 TFEU, preliminary ruling
