Overview

This resource addresses the growing concern over the confusion that attorneys face in examining and handling intellectual property rights as they relate to the Internet. Summary chapters on trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents give a solid introduction to issues in each area, followed by in-depth discussions of the Internet-specific issues and court decisions shaping that area of law. Albert and other members of the law firm of Laff, Whitesel & Satet, Ltd. explain how traditional laws are being applied to the Internet and how Internet issues have sometimes been forced to fit inside traditional boundaries as the law develops. In addition, summaries of Internet structure and use include practical applications such as instruction on the domain name system; proposed dispute resolution policies; ISPs; application of trademark law to metatags, hyperlinking, framing, and spamming; infringement, defenses, and criminal penalties; special challenges of web sites, bulletin boards, and e-mail; recent enforcement actions; and other topics.
