Product Description

Over the past 20 years, intellectual property law practice has crept into the mainstream of a lawyer's daily work. While familiarity with IP property asset protection was once a narrow specialty, it is now a key element in the "portfolio" of skills of business and commercial lawyers and most litigators. In fact, a sophisticated knowledge of IP is a prerequisite for transactional corporate, business and commercial practice. IP knowledge is power; savvy in this hot area is increasingly valuable and marketable. Rather than taking an academic approach to this potentially complex area, MCLE's Intellectual Property Practice in Massachusetts cuts straight through erudite laws and regulations, explaining in plain language how to recognize, protect, enforce and value intellectual property claims as they arise in the business context. Topics covered include patent, trademark, trade secret and copyright law and practice. You get a practical, nuts-and-bolts treatment of commonly encountered issues pertaining to intellectual property asset protection, management and enforcement against misuses and infringements. Organized according to the major categories of intellectual property practice, this manual first defines the concepts, and then guides the user through how to obtain rights, how to protect a portfolio, the cresting decisions that impact this dynamic area of law, and the many sources of primary law that are constantly shifting and evolving, especially as a result of the Web's influence on the creative process.
