Overview

Whether you're an Edison, Faulkner or Gates, you need Patent, Copyright & Trademark.
Intellectual property law has rapidly produced its own language. But don't count on understanding it right off the bat — the language baffles lawyers and lay folk alike.
Whether you're an inventor, designer, writer or programmer, you need to understand the language of intellectual property law to intelligently deal with such issues as:
* who owns creative works or valuable information
* how these owners can protect and enforce their ownership rights
* how disputes between intellectual-property owners can be resolved
* how ownership rights can best be transferred to others
* and many more
Patent, Copyright & Trademark gives you clear, plain-English definitions of intellectual property terminology. Whether you're completely new to the topic and want a basic overview, are about to enter into an agreement and want to understand all the terms before you sign, or need the answer to a specific question, this book is for you.
With this essential guide you will:
* get clear and concise overviews of patent copyright, trademark and trade secret law
* understand the different kinds of protection offered by patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets — and which apply to your work
* get a plain-English definition of every term you're likely to come across
* find cutting-edge definitions of new intellectual property terms spawned by the Internet
* find the information you need, quickly and easily — all entries are organized by topic and extensively cross-referenced
The updated 4th edition of Patent, Copyright & Trademarkprovides new information on licensing, expanded definitions and a comprehensive discussion of Interenet issues.

Designed to serve as a reference you can keep handy and refer to as questions come up, this book is for anyone who works with intellectual property and needs to understand the ins and outs of intellectual property law.

    Excellent desk reference

    I purchased this book thinking that it would provide textbook like information about aspects of intellectual property law, yet this book serves more as a desk reference to a such a book. It is an excellent reference book nonetheless, but i wouldnt suggest it for those who are looking for overviews of intellectual property law.
