  • determining who owns original work or commercial information
  • protecting and enforcing your rights
  • resolving conflicts over intellectual property
  • transferring ownership rights

  • get the basics behind intellectual property law
  • look up plain-English definitions of legal terms
  • find out how to protect your intellectual property
  • understand how intellectual property affects the Internet

Exhaustively updated, the 6th edition provides all-new information regarding the protection of idea submissions and fictional characters, new uses for end-user agreements, the failure of UCITA, the Supreme Court’s ruling in the “Victoria’s Secret” case—and much, much more! Also includes expanded information on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the effect of trademark law on domain names, and the use of names as trademarks.
