This compact volume contains all of the key patent, copyright, trademark, and unfair competition statutes and related international agreements in a form convenient for student use. This edition includes recent major amendments to the Copyright Act and the Lanham Act, including the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE Act) of 2020, which set out procedures for the newly created Copyright Claims Board to resolve copyright claims voluntarily brought before it, and the Trademark Modernization Act of 2020, which among other changes created procedures for ex parte expungement and ex parte reexamination of trademark registrations.

Other recent changes incorporated in this edition are the Music Modernization Act of 2018, the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, the Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012, and the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), which substantially rewrote the U.S. Patent Act. (The amended patent statute appears as the main text, but the volume also continues to include the most important superseded provisions of the prior patent law.) In addition to the full text of the federal Patent, Copyright, and Trademark statutes, it includes the principal intellectual property treaties and agreements, as well as the Restatement (Third) of Unfair Competition and the Uniform Trade Secrets Act.
