Overview

Professors who want to venture beyond the traditional land-based property coverage to include Intellectual Property and other emerging forms of Property Law will find this book ideally suited to their purposes. Property: Cases and Materials, Second Edition, fully integrates the law of tangible and intangible personal property with a thorough treatment of real Property Law.

Charting a course through contemporary property law, this casebook:

• provokes debate over fundamental questions from multiple perspectives
shows how a body of law develops over time and responds to changing social and technological environments
offers stand-alone chapters that can be reordered or omitted to accommodate time constraints and teaching objectives
• provides transitional material and explanatory notes
• incorporates appellate decisions, statutes, regulations, administrative decisions, law review articles, and non-legal materials
• presents a compelling selection of principal cases, such as

Elvis Presley International Memorial Foundation v. Crowell
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Inc. v. Grokster, Ltd.
Dred Scott v. Sandford o Popov v. Hayashi
Neponsit Property Owners' Ass'n v. Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank
The Barbed Wire Patent
Johnson v. Macintos
Loretto v. Teleprompter Manhattan CATV Corp.

• features a comprehensive Teacher’s Manual

Thoroughly updated throughout, the Second Edition features:

• new units on cultural property and natural resources law, including water law
• numerous recent principal cases including:

Kelo v. City of New London, on eminent domain
Georgia v. Randolph, on protecting a cotenant from a police search that was authorized by another owner
Gormley v. Robertson, on the evolving law of property rights for same-sex couples
Philip Morris, Inc. v. Reilly, on regulatory takings of trade secrets
Wilderness Watch v. Mainella, on the protection of Cumberland Island as a wilderness area
Corliss v. Wenner, on finder's rights to treasure trove
Carson Harbor Village, Ltd. v. Unocal Corporation, on liability for environmental contamination

Property: Cases and Materials, now in a Second Edition, maps the full landscape of contemporary property law, bringing into focus basic land-based property law along with that other major promontory, intellectual property. As you chart a course through your next Property class, this may well be the casebook you’ll want to bring with you.
