Intellectual Property Law: Cases & Materials (6th edition)


Intellectual Property Law: Cases & Materials (6th edition)



Version 6.0 continues to provide engaging and challenging coverage of all the major types of intellectual property law: trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark law. Covering cases and developments through Spring 2018, the Sixth Edition includes all the latest Supreme Court cases that are vital to a survey course. Each chapter continues to optimize clear presentation of tightly edited cases and concise notes and questions.

The book kicks off with an introductory chapter that explores the basic policies animating intellectual property law, and concludes with two overarching chapters—one on intellectual property limits (preemption and first sale), and one on remedies (redressing past harm and preventing future harm). This book is designed to guide student analysis, as well as to challenge students to make vital connections within and across doctrines and policies. Finally, the authors—both veteran teachers of the intellectual property law survey course—offer a comprehensive Teacher's Manual on request.
