Introduction to Intellectual Property: Cases and Materials / Edition 1by Thomas G. Field Jr.
Pub. Date: 01/28/2003
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
Introduction to Intellectual Property is a relatively conventional casebook with many notes and several problems. The book is designed to provide the comprehensive foundation needed, regardless of students' intention to specialize in IP or, more likely, some subset of it. IP issues have become so pervasive that few lawyers can afford to be ignorant of the cumulative and alternative strategic value of IP options. Moreover, strategic choices cannot be made in isolation and the foundation for making them cannot be acquired in focused, advanced IP courses.
Topics covered include: patent background; patent basics; other patent requirements; limitations on rights; copyright basics; copyright ownership and enforcement; copyright defenses and sanctions; trade secrets; preemption reconsidered; trademark rights; scope of trademark rights; and speech-related concerns.
