Intellectual Property: Law & the Information Society - Cases & Materials 2nd Edition (2015). [N.B. THIS IS NOT THE CURRENT (2016) 3RD EDITION WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON AMAZON: ISBN 1535598166. WE CONTINUE TO OFFER IT BECAUSE SOME COLLEAGUES HAVE CHOSEN TO STAY WITH THE SECOND EDITION.] This open coursebook is an introduction to intellectual property law, the set of private legal rights that allows individuals and corporations to control intangible creations and marks—from logos to novels to drug formulae —and the exceptions and limitations that define those rights. It focuses on the three main forms of US federal intellectual property—trademark, copyright and patent, with a new chapter on state trade secret protection and preemption—but many of the ideas discussed here apply far beyond those legal areas and far beyond the law of the United States.
