NOW AVAILABLE: Ver. 3.2 with revisions reflecting the Supreme Court's quite active 2013-14 term in patent and copyright law, as well as other key developments, such as the Second Circuit's fair use decision in the Hathitrust case. Continuing a change first made in in Ver. 3.1, the authors provide two "experimental" 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. These chapters are now included in the full book, rather than by separate download. Finally, the right of publicity materials have been moved outside the book, in a separately downloadable supplemental chapter.

In this casebook, fully updated for 2014, 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 two special chapters, one exploring the limiting doctrines of preemption and first sale, and the other canvassing remedies topics across all ip types. 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.
