NOW AVAILABLE: Ver. 3.1 with revisions reflecting the America Invents Act, the Supreme Court's 2013 Myriad Genetics decision, and a newly revised and updated section on design patents.  Additionally, for 2013 the authors have created two "experiemental chapters": one addressing the limiting doctrines of preemption and first sale across all of the intellectual property areas, and another that brings together a comprehensive set of materials examining remedies in intellectual property litigation.

In this casebook, fully updated for 2013, Loren and Miller provide engaging and challenging coverage of all the major types of intellectual property law: trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark law. In addition, the book kicks off with an introductory chapter that explores the basic policies animating intellectual property law through the lens of the common law tort of misappropriation. It closes with a chapter on the right of publicity - a state-law outgrowth of privacy law premised, in part, on facets of trademark policy - which has expanded with the rise of celebrity culture. Loren and Miller augment the tightly edited cases with concise notes and questions designed to guide student analysis and to challenge students to make vital connections within and across doctrines and policies. Finally, the authors - veteran teachers of the intellectual property law survey course - offer a comprehensive Teacher's Manual on request.
