Overview

The essential intellectual property reference for all areas of science and technology—covering patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets

Did you know that a patent does not give its owner the right to make, use, or sell the invention covered by his patent? That a trademark need never be registered in order to sue others for infringing on it? Or that even an unpublished work is protected by copyright under the latest copyright laws?

Crucial and often surprising information like this is given careful attention in Patent and Trademark Tactics and Practice, Third Edition. The author—an expert patent attorney—outlines the fundamental principles that must be understood by inventors, business people, and others engaged in the development, protection, and management of intellectual property.

With straightforward language and clear, concise explanations, this book explains legal rights and obligations as well as correct procedures necessary for legal protection. It answers dozens of legal and procedural questions, from how to find a good patent attorney and apply for a patent to how to select and use a trademark and protect trade secrets. The book will help you work with a patent attorney by guiding you in keeping proper patent records, properly using your trademarks and documenting crucial information that will be needed by counsel.
