The fast-paced world of technology raises special issues for managers and requires new ways of assimilating information and formulating strategic decisions. Managers of technology appreciate that their most prized possessions are ideas and that ideas may be quickly and easily lost if they are not handled in the appropriate strategic legal fashion. Assuming no legal background on the part of the reader, Legal Aspects of Managing Technology is designed to provide you with the information and management tools required to effectively gain and maintain your company's technological advantage. Highlights include coverage of computer law, biotechnology, digital sampling, and product design protection; impact on managers of the GATT agreements, NAFTA, the establishment of the European union, as well as current initiatives to fundamentally alter the U.S. patent system; coverage of the most important and current judicial cases preceded with thorough explanations and followed by summaries of their major principles; and logical organization designed to help the reader understand the fundamental legal issues involved without getting mired in every detail of the law.

This helpful guide uses a public policy approach, illustrating how U.S. and international governmental bodies make and change policies affecting technology management. To illustrate legal issues discussed in the text, Lee Burgunder uses actual legal cases. Throughout, Burgunder focuses on the issues that are of most concern to technology managers.
