Summary

This book is an excellent resource for professionals who have not had formal training in intellectual property law. It is a comprehensive book that addresses the typical tasks encountered by practitioners, combining both substantive knowledge of the law with the practical focus required of IP practitioners. The manuscript is divided into four sections, each devoted to the topics that create intellectual property - trademarks, copyrights, patents and trade secrets. Understanding of each topic is critical to the long-term success of IP professionals, whether they function in law firms, government agencies or in private sector businesses.
