. understand the different kinds of protection offered by patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets -- and which apply to your work
. get a plain-English definition of every term you're likely to come across, and
. find the information you need, quickly and easily -- all entries are organized by topic and extensively cross-referenced.
