INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: THE LAW OF TRADEMARKS, COPYRIGHTS, PATENTS, AND TRADE SECRETS, Fourth Edition, is a thorough guide to the four fields of intellectual property law: trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets. This comprehensive, yet reader-friendly book helps you master the complexities of modern intellectual property law, including topics such as registration procedures, duration of rights, protection from infringement, current concerns in each field, and international trends and developments. Now updated in a new Fourth Edition, this wide-ranging book features coverage of cutting-edge issues such as technological innovations, intellectual property in the digital age, the role of the Internet, and evolving business law. In addition to an in-depth overview of each field, the book features abundant practical material, such as sample agreements, forms, checklists of paralegal tasks, charts, citations, statutes, realistic case studies, excerpts of real cases, and interesting trivia to capture your interest and provide valuable insights into real-world paralegal practice. Additional useful features include references to intellectual property websites, questions to encourage targeted Internet research, Case Illustrations, Case Study and Activities, Role of Paralegal element, and "Ethics Edge" boxes that explore ethical issues related to chapter content.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The end-of-chapter resources are excellent."

"Students enjoy reading the Trivia boxes, and the Case Illustrations give students exposure to court opinions and pique their interest to read the entire opinion."

"This text has been very popular with instructors and students because the author has done such a good job of covering all of the major topics in IP in a readable, yet thorough, manner. The balance of theoretical and practical is perfect, given the survey nature of the text."

Booknews
A textbook that aims to provide both sound foundational concepts together with practical advice useful for intellectual property IP professionals. Each field within the umbrella of IP is given separate treatment, with chapters on trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets, and unfair competition. The method by which they are created, procedures to register and protect, duration of rights, protections from infringement, and new and international developments are addressed for each of the topics.
