Patent, Copyright & Trademark: An Intellectual Property Desk Reference
 
 
A plain-English guide to intellectual property law

Whether you are in the world of business or creative arts, understanding the laws that govern your work is critical to success. But given the convoluted terminology that surrounds patents, copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights, this isn’t easy. Enter Patent, Copyright & Trademark, which explains:

  • what legal rights apply to your creations, products, or inventions
  • different types of patents for inventions from machines to plant clones
  • the scope of copyright protection
  • how trademark law works, and
  • what trade-secret law protects.

Here, you’ll find readily understandable definitions of intellectual property law terms, straightforward explanations of how intellectual property law affects online content, and much more.

The 16th edition is completely updated to provide the latest laws, court decisions, and sample application and other forms.
