This timely treatise explains the laws that criminalize violations of intellectual property rights and unauthorized computer access—and how they may affect your practice. It also includes discussions of general principles of intellectual property law as well as in-depth analysis of the increasing use of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act ("CFAA") and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act ("ECPA") in civil litigation. Intellectual Property and Computer Crimes examines criminal infringement, the expanded scope of computer hacking laws, and the important legal issues that arise when these crimes are prosecuted.

Coverage includes: criminal misappropriation of intellectual property; computer crimes; civil actions for computer hacking; guidelines to determine whether to prosecute thefts of trade secrets; government search and seizure of computers; techniques to prevent intellectual property theft; and computer hacking and civil liability under the CFAA and ECPA.
