"Intellectual Property: Private Rights, The Public Interest, and The Regulation of Creative Activity"" provides an overview of trademark, patent, and copyright doctrine and offers a foray into more advanced topics, such as digital rights management, international law, and state doctrinal developments in both civil and criminal law. Particularly unique is a final chapter that develops the ""new horizons"" of intellectual property, covering topics like open source, intellectual property and development, intellectual property as a business asset, and competition policy. The casebook is targeted to a wide range of law students, including both those who are scientifically inclined and those who are interested by creativity and invention as it arises in all aspects of current society. This book seeks to meet the needs of existing intellectual property professors and the host of new professors entering academia. The emphasis is on public regulation and encouragement of the creation and use of intellectual products. While many existing books focus squarely on the private interests protected by intellectual property law, this book's perspective is on both the private and public interests affected by intellectual property law as it regulates and promotes creative processes. By emphasizing the longstanding connection between intellectual property and the creative process, this casebook will appeal to a wide law school audience and explain the place of intellectual property law in an expanding, thriving economy.
