Description

The Law of Intellectual Property: Legal Aspects of Innovation and Competition provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the principal areas of intellectual property protection: trade secrets, patents, copyrights, trademarks, and the right of publicity, as well as treatment of legal protection for other valuable intangibles and international intellectual property issues. Each chapter includes summaries of the law and excerpted cases to illustrate the application of legal rules and concepts. Applicable statutory provisions are excerpted and included for quick reference. The cases are followed by variety of questions and comments to prompt classroom discussion, and each chapter concludes with an extensive set of discussion problems and a case study. Also accompanying each chapter are a set of writing and practical exercises to enhance student written and critical thinking skills, and to provide experiential learning as to specific tasks involved in securing and protecting intellectual property rights.
