New book purchase includes complimentary, lifetime digital access to the eBook, at no additional charge.

This compact volume contains all of the key patent, copyright, trademark, and unfair competition statutes and related international agreements in a form convenient for student use. This edition includes the recently signed Music Modernization Act, which substantially revised copyright law’s compulsory license for making and distributing phonorecords of nondramatic musical works and granted federal rights to sound recordings created before February 15, 1972. Also included are amendments to copyright law made to implement the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works by Visually Impaired Persons and Persons with Print Disabilities.

Other recent changes incorporated in this edition are the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, the Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012, and the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), which substantially rewrote the U.S. Patent Act. (The amended patent statute appears as the main text, but the volume also continues to include the most important superseded provisions of the prior patent law.) In addition to the full text of the federal Patent, Copyright, and Trademark statutes, it includes the principal intellectual property treaties and agreements, as well as the Restatement (Third) of Unfair Competition and the Uniform Trade Secrets Act.
