Description

This casebook provides a comprehensive survey of design protection, one of the hottest fields of intellectual property. The casebook is user-friendly and accessible to students of any experience level, including students with no prior knowledge of intellectual property. The casebook takes a practical approach to the study of design protection by including numerous real-world problems for the students to answer as they study the key cases and laws in the casebook. Students are introduced to the key concepts of U.S. design patent law, trademark law, and copyright law that relate to the protection of designs. In addition, the casebook compares the U.S. approach with the popular Community design right of the European Union and also introduces the students to the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs. Several exam-style questions are included in the final chapter for the students to test their knowledge of the materials.
