By William New, Intellectual Property Watch on 19/01/2012 @ 4:23 pm
“Idea Rights: A Guide to Intellectual Property” is a recently published book that looks at the major statutes and cases in intellectual property law with experienced, yet fresh, eyes.
Author Howard C. Anawalt, professor emeritus at Santa Clara University School of Law (US), says the book “gives a good clear explanation of all doctrines. Also, it avoids a pro-ownership slant so common in coverages.”
Written in a clear and direct style, the book includes the underlying thinking and context, one-page reference tables, and numerous photos, exhibits and other illustrations. The chapters cover intellectual property, patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, other legal theories and remedies, and policy.
According to the publishers, Carolina Academic Press: “Its coverage follows the analytical thinking done by lawyers in all phases of intellectual property problem solving. Each chapter analyzes the development of the law and areas of application, such as protection of software and controversies over the use of the Internet. The book demonstrates the power of intellectual property in society and in our everyday lives.”
