NOW AVAILABLE:  Ver. 8.0 - released October 2023. 

Version 8.0 continues to provide engaging and challenging coverage of all the major types of intellectual property law: trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark law. Covering cases and developments through Spring 2023, the Eighth Edition includes all the latest Supreme Court cases that are necessary to a survey course, including the Court's recent copyright fair use opinion Andy Warhol Foundation v. Goldsmith. Each chapter continues to optimize clear presentation of tightly edited cases and concise notes and questions.


The book kicks off with an introductory chapter that explores the basic policies animating intellectual property law, and concludes with an overarching chapter on intellectual property limits with two sections, one on preemption and one on first sale, and a short chapter on remedies. This book is designed to guide student analysis, as well as to challenge students to make vital connections within and across doctrines and policies.


The authors—both veteran teachers of the intellectual property law survey course—offer a comprehensive Teacher's Manual, keyed fully to the new edition, on request.
