Professor Andrew Terry recognised as global authority on trademark and unfair competition law

14 Apr 2014

A publication released by London's highly respected Edward Elgar recognises the University of Sydney Business School's Professor Andrew Terry as one of the past century's foremost authorities on trademarks and unfair competition law.

An article by Professor Terry was selected by the editors, Graeme Dinwoodie of Oxford University and Mark Janis of Indiana University Maurer, for inclusion in two volume collection of works on trademarks and competition law.

Professor Terry's 1988 article, titled Unfair Competition and the Misappropriation of a Competitor's Trade Values, was originally published in Modern Law Review.

Edward Elgar's collection, Trademark and Unfair Competition Law, includes just 44 articles written over nearly a century.

The publisher of academic, law and other professorial books says the articles, "spanning almost a century and three continents, bring together the most influential and significant scholarly work in this exciting field".

A review by Professor David Vaver of Oxford and Canada's Osgoode Hall Law School describes the assembly of writings by scholars, lawyers and judges, as "a rich offering that ranges across time, place and perspective".

"The inclusion of my article in this prestigious collection is an enormous honour," said Professor Terry who holds the Chair of Business Regulation in the Business School's Discipline of Business Law. "It is one of the highlights of my career."

In addition to his role at the Business School, Professor Terry is an Emeritus Professor at the University of New South Wales and Honorary Dean and Visiting Professor of Beijing Normal University's Franchise Management School.

He researches and teaches in the areas of competition law, fair trading law and intellectual property law, with a particular focus on franchising, and has had more than 300 papers published.

Professor Terry has been inducted into the Australian Franchising Hall of fame.
