A Coursebook in International Intellectual Property

Front Cover
West Academic, 2000 - Law
This new coursebook begins with an overview of copyright, patents, trademarks & trade secrets under U.S. law & then looks through the "window on the world" to the rapidly developing treaty regimes, reciprocal international legislation, & international cases & controversies that attempt to balance the intellectual property needs of developed & developing nations. Students will learn not only that other nations have different perspectives on intellectual property law rights, but also that there is an area of international intellectual property that is not part of U.S. law -- the law of "cultural patrimony." It also offers an in-depth look at select topics such as the Internet, computer software, databases, the European Union & the impact of cultural rights on intellectual property.
