It is designed to be reader-friendly and is up-to-date through October 2016, including many new important Supreme Court decisions in copyright, patent, and trademark law. It can be a study guide for an intellectual property survey course or used as a useful introduction or refresher for anyone interested in the field. The book focuses primarily on three main federal intellectual property rights - copyrights, patents, and trademarks - along with the new federal trade secret law and important areas of state law protection (such as the right of publicity)."--Publisher.
