Intellectual Property and Computer Crimes
"A must-have desk reference.... A practical all-in-one legal resource on intellectual property and computer crimes...." -- The Vermont Bar Journal
Written by a former federal prosecutor with the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, this complete guide explains the criminal laws that apply to violations of intellectual property rights and unauthorized computer access, as well as civil violations under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act -- and their impact on your clients. Intellectual Property and Computer Crimes examines criminal infringement, the expanded scope of computer hacking laws, and the important legal issues that arise when these crimes are prosecuted.
Coverage includes detailed analysis of the Economic Espionage Act based on the latest cases; how to calculate damages and the meaning of unauthorized access under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; recent prosecutions under the Trademark Counterfeiting Act; state prosecutions for computer hacking and theft of trade secrets; and civil cases brought under the DMCA. In addition to analysis of laws aimed specifically at intellectual property violations, you'll find discussion of how general criminal laws are used to prosecute intellectual property crimes.
Whether you are a criminal lawyer seeking guidance on intellectual property issues or a civil lawyer with questions about criminal law or the use of criminal statutes in civil litigation, this book is an invaluable reference.
