NOW AVAILABLE: Ver. 4.1 -Fully revised and released July 2016.  

Version 4.1 continues to provide engaging and challenging coverage of all the major types of intellectual property law: trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark law. The book kicks off with an introductory chapter that explores the basic policies animating intellectual property law, and concludes with two overarching chapters – one on ip limits (preemption, and first sale), and one on remedies (redressing past harm, and preventing future harm). Covering cases and developments through Spring 2016, the book includes all the latest Supreme Court and circuit court cases that are vital to a survey course. Each chapter has been fully revised, reflecting reorganizations – some small, some more extensive – that optimize clear presentation of tightly edited cases and concise notes and questions. This book is designed to guide student analysis, as well as 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.
