Overview

About this book:

Fundamentals of United States Intellectual Property Law, completely revised and updated, offers in one volume a comprehensive review of US copyright, patent, and trademark laws. Similar to its previous editions, the book’s thorough and sophisticated treatment of this complex material escapes the cumbersome overelaboration of a multivolume treatise on the one hand and a superficial “nutshell” on the other. Maintaining the systematic structure that makes it easy for users to focus on any particular matter, this edition incorporates the changes that have entered into force since the fifth edition and expertly examines their effects.

What’s in this book:

This well-received desk reference covers three major categories of copyright, patent, and trademark—along with a fourth section on chip protection—with detailed but concise examination and analysis of such issues and topics as the following and much more:

  • subject matter of protection;
  • conditions of protection;
  • registration procedures;
  • scope of exclusive rights;
  • transfer of interests;
  • fair use;
  • rights in unregistered marks;
  • protection of computer software, code, and databases;
  • remedies and defenses; and
  • procedural issues in infringement actions.

The authors provide an extensive explication of each primary statute and also examine significant case law, in the course of their analysis.

How this will help you:

This book succinctly, accurately, and thoroughly summarizes intellectual property law, a dynamic field, in the United States. This book helps readers in understanding and applying the various concepts of intellectual property to new situations they may confront either in a clinical setting, where actual clients are represented, or for examination or discussion purposes. With its detailed citations and readily accessible and complete subject coverage, this latest edition endeavors to be a handbook for intellectual property practitioners, in-house counsel, patent agents, academics, and librarians, as well as for anyone interested in understanding US intellectual property law.
