Library Highlights: Intellectual Property

Customs Enforcement: Protecting Intellectual Property Rights Across Borders

Timothy P. Trainer, Vicki E. Allums

KF2979 .T72 2010

From the Publisher: This book discusses border enforcement of intellectual property rights, including legal authority, standards, and procedures in the U.S. and other countries. It’s the only comprehensive source of how U.S. Customs protects intellectual property, and it also outlines what to look for in foreign systems. It clearly shows you how to use Customs as your first line of defense against infringing goods, and covers the legal authority to detain, seize, forfeit, and destroy goods. You’ll also find information on how to statutorily resolve Customs enforcement issues, answer infrastructure questions that foreign officials raise, and much more.

The Rhetoric of Intellectual Property: Copyright Law and the Regulation of Digital Culture

Jessica Reyman

KF2994 .R49 2010

From the Publisher: In recent years we have witnessed a rising tension between the open architecture of the Internet and legal restrictions for online activities. The impact of digital recording technologies and distributed file sharing systems has forever changed the expectations of everyday users with regard to digital information. At the same time, however, U.S. Copyright Law has shown a decided trend toward more restrictions over what we are able to do with digital materials. As a result, a gap has emerged between the reality of copyright law and the social reality of our everyday activities. Through an analysis of the competing rhetorical frameworks about copyright regulation in a digital age, this book shows how the stories told by active parties in the debate shape our cultural understanding of what is and is not acceptable in the use of copyrighted works on digital networks. Reyman posits recent legal developments as sites of conflict between competing value systems in our culture: one of control, relying heavily on comparisons of intellectual property to physical property, and emphasizing ownership, theft, and piracy, and the other a value of community, implementing new concepts such as that of an intellectual “commons,” and emphasizing exchange, collaboration, and responsibility to a public good. Reyman argues that the rhetoric of the digital copyright debate, namely the rhetorical positioning of technology as destructive to creative and intellectual production, has profound implications for the future of digital culture.

Property Outlaws: How Squatters, Pirates, and Protesters Improve the Law of Ownership

Eduardo Moisés Peñalver, Sonia K. Katyal

K721.5 .P445 2010

From the Publisher: Property Outlaws puts forth the intriguingly counterintuitive proposition that, in the case of both tangible and intellectual property law, disobedience can often lead to an improvement in legal regulation. The authors argue that in property law there is a tension between the competing demands of stability and dynamism, but its tendency is to become static and fall out of step with the needs of society. The authors employ wide-ranging examples of the behaviors of “property outlaws”— the trespasser, squatter, pirate, or file-sharer—to show how specific behaviors have induced legal innovation. They also delineate the similarities between the actions of property outlaws in the spheres of tan gible and intellectual property. An important conclusion of the book is that a dynamic between the activities of “property outlaws” and legal innovation should be cultivated in order to maintain this avenue of legal reform.

Re-thinking Intellectual Property: The Political Economy of Copyright Protection in the Digital Era

YiJun Tian

K1420.5 .T53 2009

From the Publisher: Copyright laws, along with other Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), constitute the legal foundation for the “global knowledge-based economy” and copyright law now plays an increasingly important role in the creation of business fortunes, the access to and dissemination of knowledge, and human development in general.

This book examines major problems in the current IPR regime, particularly the copyright regime, in the context of digitization, knowledge economy, and globalization. The book contends that the final goals of IP law and policy-making are to enhance the progress of science and economic development, and the use and even-distribution of intellectual resource at the global level. By referring to major international IP consensus, recent developments in regional IP forums and the successful experiences of various countries,

YiJun Tian is able to provide specific theoretical, policy and legislative suggestions for addressing current copyright challenges. The book contends that each nation should strengthen the coordination of its IP protection and development strategies, adopt a more systematic and heterogeneous approach, and make IP theory, policy, specific legal mechanisms, marketing forces and all other available measures work collectively to deal with digital challenges and in a way that contributes to the establishment of a knowledge equilibrium international society.

Computer Games and Virtual Worlds:

A New Frontier in Intellectual Property Law

edited by Ross A. Dannenberg

KF3024.C6 C625 2010

From the Publisher: As the uses and ubiquity of video games and virtual worlds expand, the legal issues they raise grow more complex and commonplace. These issues include the traditional areas of intellectual property law, namely, copyright, trademark, patent and trade secrets, as affected by contractual issues arising from the end user licensing agreements (EULA) and terms of service (ToS) promulgated by each video game and virtual world proprietor. This book explores and discusses how to obtain these traditional rights in the non-traditional settings of video game and virtual world environments, and serves as a primer for legal practitioners researching these emerging legal issues. Each chapter addresses, in order, end user license agreements, copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets, as addressed by U.S. law. The book also includes a commentary on international legal issues stemming from the multi-national user-base and foreign operation of many virtual worlds.

IP and Antitrust: An Analysis of Antitrust Principles Applied to Intellectual Property Law

Herbert Hovenkamp … [et al.]

KF3116 .H68 2010

From the Publisher: IP and Antitrust: An Analysis of Antitrust Principles Applied to Intellectual Property Law, Second Edition is a two-volume reference that focuses on the intersection of the areas of IP and antitrust. While intellectual property licensing arrangements are typically pro-competitive, antitrust concerns may nonetheless arise. Licensing arrangements raise concerns under the antitrust laws if they are likely to adversely affect the prices, quantities, qualities or varieties of goods and services — either currently or potentially available. The Justice Department’s rekindled interest in intellectual property licensing arrangements now requires that companies factor antitrust considerations into the drafting and review of intellectual property licensing arrangements. Thus, licensing agreements involving intellectual property must now be drafted with two considerations in mind: maximizing the commercial value of intellectual property rights, and minimizing antitrust risks.
