Principles of Patent Law provides comprehensive coverage of the policies, laws, rules, and practices of the U.S. patent system in a format accessible to students, lawyers, government officials, and business people. The Sixth Edition builds on the strengths of prior editions in providing an indispensable combination of the law and economic theory of patents with extensive and diverse legal analyses and practitioner insights. It also continues to offer unique perspectives from the theory and practice of those who use and study property rights more generally and the history of the patent system more specifically. The Sixth Edition has been updated to cover the extensive developments in the law since the Fifth Edition, including the America Invents Act. This new edition also includes materials that contrast the common, utility patent, with other patent-like regimes including plant patents and design patents. A wealth of supplementary materials are provided in the accompanying website, including full versions of background documents such as patent files, unedited versions of important cases, extra reading, and special materials designed to help students during their studies as well as while seeking a job.

This is the second edition of the first casebook in the United States devoted exclusively to trade secret law. As with the successful first edition, it is challenging yet user-friendly to students in order to facilitate their reading and understanding of the material. It is designed to be used by law students (and business students) with no prior background in intellectual property law. Due to the breadth of the subject matter, professors who teach trade secret law need not be intellectual property experts, but can specialize in a variety of fields, including employment law, torts, and unfair competition. The casebook also provides the context to re-teach and reinforce many of the basic concepts of law that students learned as 1L's, including tort law, contract law, property law, civil procedure, constitutional law, and criminal law. This new edition includes timely additions relating to the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) and the EU Trade Secret Directive, two laws that went into effect in mid-2016, and which are certain to change the landscape of trade secret law in the United States and Europe. Unlike the only other existing casebook on the topic, this book continues to focus on and teach the predominant source of trade secret law in the U.S., the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) as interpreted by courts throughout the U.S. The authors have made conscious and thoughtful decisions about the way in which the information throughout the casebook is presented and organized. The general organization of the casebook follows a logical analytical approach to understanding trade secret law with the chapters progressing from proving the essential elements of a trade secret claim to defensive tactics and remedies, managing trade secrets, and criminal actions. It also addresses employment, management, and international issues.

This brand-new copyright casebook differs from other copyright law casebooks in a number of respects. First, this casebook emphasizes the essential materials at the heart of the subject. The result is a streamlined and exceptionally clear casebook, in which the main themes, ideas, and theories in this exciting and dynamic field are not obscured by extraneous readings. Second, the casebook takes full advantage of technology by providing access to a companion website containing an extensive library of additional modules, topics, edited cases, notes, problems, and audio-visual materials from cases and hypotheticals for use in class. The book is authored by two experts in the field, who have written extensively about copyright, the arts, and the impact of new technology. The approach is both practical and theoretically sophisticated, with a particular focus on the latest controversies in the field.
