Intellectual Property: Law & the Information Society—Cases and Materials

Copyright Year: 2016

Contributors: Boyle and Jenkins

Publisher: James Boyle, Jennifer Jenkins

License: CC BY-NC-SA

This book is an introduction to intellectual property law, the set of private legal rights that allows individuals and corporations to control intangible creations and marks—from logos to novels to drug formulae—and the exceptions and limitations that define those rights. It focuses on the three graphmain forms of US federal intellectual property—trademark, copyright and patent—but many of the ideas discussed here apply far beyond those legal areas and far beyond the law of the United States.
