An introductory chapter outlines and compares the various fields of intellectual property law, analyzing their purposes, underlying policies and important differences, as well as their treatment by the courts. Separate sections for each type of intellectual property examine what can be protected, the requirements for protection, the intellectual property owner's rights, limitations on those rights and the standards for establishing infringement.
Concluding chapters provide detailed comparisons of the remedies available under the various intellectual property statutes and at common law, including monetary relief, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, augmented and punitive damages, import exclusion, attorneys' fees and criminal sanctions. Extensive treatment of legislative and regulatory, judicial and international developments is incorporated throughout.
