Intellectual Property Stories assembles 15 nationally-recognized full-time members of the intellectual property professorate to bring famous cases to life by exploring the history, policy, and human interests underlying the canonical cases in the field. The stories are organized into six chapters, each drawing on cases in patents, copyrights, trademarks, or unfair competition, to illustrate the problems intellectual property law encounters. The works, inventions, and marks at issue in these cases vary widely. Many of the stories illustrate more than the issue identified in the chapter title. Thus, it is possible to confine one's reading to an individual intellectual property regime, and still encounter most of the issues common to the whole field. However, each of the stories is written in a manner that will interest and instruct intellectual property students and scholars across the breadth of the field, without requiring particular knowledge of any of its specialized branches.
