A powerful, encyclopedic tool that clarifies the complex language of this rapidly expanding field.

It defines patent, trademark, and copyright terms of art and uses them in context to better explain each one and the various legal scenarios in which they may be found. The Encyclopedia also analyzes relevant cases and statutes and provides citations to more cases and IP treatises for additional research. The authors’ unique, three-level treatment of each term allows the reader to delve into as much detail as is required for the immediate need at hand. This approach allows experienced practitioners and newcomers alike to immediately find the most relevant material. The first level for each term is a concise and simple definition. The second level of coverage is a more complete and detailed explanation, which for more complicated subjects, includes use of the term in context by courts, Congress, and others. The third level of information includes citations for further research in leading IP treatises, cases, and other legal resources and, where appropriate, URL references to relevant web sites. The Encyclopedia also includes a table of cases, appendices that list the treatises used by the authors, plus historical lists of all patent and trademark directors, commissioners, and registers of copyrights.
