Goldstein and Trimble's International Intellectual Property Law, Cases and Materials, 5th
This casebook organizes contemporary foreign, as well as U.S., case law and literature to equip law students with the knowledge they need to practice intellectual property law in both transactional and litigation settings in the current globalized environment. Carefully selected materials also expose students to the social, economic, and cultural considerations that underpin intellectual property law around the world. The casebook covers aspects of public international law, conflict of laws (private international law), and comparative law of intellectual property. Each area of law―copyright, patent, trademark, unfair competition, trade secrets, and industrial design―is introduced by a comprehensive authors’ note placing the field in its international and comparative law context, and extensive notes on the cases and materials fill in relevant details, including current and historically important topics. Materials on the major fields of intellectual property law are accompanied by materials on other related intellectual property matters, such as the protection of databases, plant varieties, geographical indications of origin, and Internet domain names.
