    Updated in 2018 by Philip Barnes, based on an original version by Nigel Frankland.

    For several years Nigel Frankland thought that there should be a study guide explaining to candidates what they need to do to pass the Patent Examination Board (PEB) FD4 (P6) (Infringement and Validity) examination.

    Nigel originally wrote the guide as he had seen many candidates who were not prepared for the examination. It has been updated for 2018 by a PEB examiner.

    Infringement and Validity is aimed at supporting any candidate taking this examination.

    The CIPA FD4 Study Guide, Infringement and Validity, is intended to introduce a trainee patent attorney to the realities of paper FD4 (P6) (Infringement and Validity) of the PEB. The book is addressed to a candidate who has been active in the patent profession for at least two years, and who has met the eligibility requirements for the examination

    Study Guide to the Patents Acts (2020)

    £59 non-members - £48 members

    Doug Ealey's Study Guide to the Patents Acts sets out to achieve the opposite of such books as Visser and Hoekstra. Rather than provide exhaustive commentary on patent law for reference during the open book EQEs, it instead simplifies the law and commentary as far as possible to provide a bare-bones reference that can be readily learnt by students taking the closed-book UK finals.

    This book is designed to help prepare for the PEB FD1 (formerly P2) examination.

    The 12th edition has been updated to incorporate recent changes in law.
