Overview

Rich in doctrine, policy, and theory, The Law of Patents offers a logical and comprehensive treatment of patent law. This casebook is more lean in nature than competing textbooks, yet covers all the main topics in an accessible manner for students. It offers helpful introductory text preceding each chapter and case or set of cases, technologically-accessible cases, detailed comments following the principal cases, highlighted statutes for easy reference, and uniquely offset comparative and policy perspectives.

More succinct than others of its kind, this casebook offers everything your students need to master the subject of patent law:

• a lean yet comprehensive format covers all of the main topics of patent law
• a logical and accessible sequencing of chapters
helpful introductory text precedes each chapter, sub-section and case, to give students insight into what is covered and a general doctrinal/policy framework of the materials to follow
“comments” following the principal cases provide students with details on the case, delve into the doctrine and policy in a more extensive manner, and provide citations of secondary literature
“perspectives” throughout the book, shaded and offset from the main text. There are two types of perspectives:

comparative perspectives explore the comparative/international aspects of any given use
policy perspectives discuss a theoretical point or relevant policy debate

relevant statutory section numbers are identified at the beginning of each chapter to alert the student which statutes apply to the following materials
relevant statutory provisions are included in a separate section of the text and are marked off by a black band on the side of the book for easy access , eliminating the need for students to buy a separate statutory supplement and increasing the likelihood that they will read the relevant statutes
• many chapters have extensive citations to academic literature, which provides students and instructors with guidance if they choose to dig deeper into the subject matter
• a companion website provides a fast and convenient means to disseminate judicial and legislative updates, and includes PDF files of all of the patents-in-suit discussed in the principal cases, the complete prosecution history of the “pizza box” patent explored in Chapter One, as well as historical documents and links to important patent law sites and documents
PowerPoint slides available for adopters for classroom use
