This complete, one-stop lexicon of IP terminology helps you understand and apply the language of intellectual property in any situation.

Designed for lawyers, law students, professors and anyone who works closely with intellectual property issues, the Intellectual Property Law Dictionary contains six sections explaining the meaning and legal background of terms used in copyright, trademark, patent, trade dress, nanotechnology and trade secrets, both in the U.S. and internationally. More than just a dictionary, it provides detailed citations to source materials with every definition. You'll also find an “Overview of Intellectual Property”, explaining the essentials of each type of intellectual property and appendices offering concise histories of the law of copyright, patents, trademark, trade dress, nanotechnology and trade secrets.

There's no need to pore over dozens of pages of statutes, treaties and cases to find out what a new expression or acronym means. With this useful reference, you'll get the answers you need, quickly and easily.
