Overview

Professors who want a book that broadens the traditional land-based property book coverage to include intellectual property and other emerging forms of property will find this new offering ideally suited to their purposes. Property: Cases and Materials fully integrates intellectual property and other forms of intangible personal property with solid treatment of land-based property.

This brand new casebook sets the stage for a lively and enlightening course:

  • Provides an integrated study of both 'old' and 'new' property in one concise volume.
  • Provokes debate over fundamental questions from multiple perspectives: the creation of property, information as property, collective versus individual rights, and when an interest qualifies as property, rather than being protected by some other body of law.
  • Through the discussion of intellectual property shows how a body of law grows over time and responds to new social and technological environments.
  • Provides transitional material and explanatory notes to help students understand the purpose of the cases and readings.
  • Includes appellate decisions, statutes, regulations, administrative decisions, law review articles, and non-legal materials.

    Instructors will appreciate:

  • The casebook's flexible structure, which allows chapters to stand alone or be omitted when the time is right.
  • The compelling selection of cases and materials, such as Elvis Presley International Memorial Foundation v. Crowell (the right of publicity), Panavision International, L.P. v. Toeppen (rights in Internet domain names), Dred Scott v. Sandford (rights in human beings and the role of social values in defining property), the most recent taking cases, and Gary Smith's The Ball, an article on the dispute over the Barry Bonds homerun ball.
  • A Teacher's Manual which explains the selection of materials, suggests how to use them in class, and offers additional readings.

    To make your next Property class as timely as tomorrow's headlines, adopt Property: Cases and Materials.
