The Tenth Edition of Copyright Law features three new principal cases: the U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons and Aereo, Inc. v. American Broadcasting Cos., and the Second Circuit¿s decision in Authors Guild v. Google, Inc. (the ¿Google Books¿ case). It also features a reorganization of Chapter 2, bringing much of Feist Publications v. Rural Telephone Service Co. forward, rather than deferring the full opinion to the end of Chapter 3, as in previous editions. The authors have also revised and updated the Notes and Questions throughout, to reflect the past three years of copyright case law.

This widely used casebook, cited by the Supreme Court in its Moseley v. V Secret Catalogue decision on trademark dilution, is authored by three of the nation's preeminent trademark practitioners and teachers. Constitutional issues--pertaining to the Commerce Clause, the Patent and Copyright Clause, the Supremacy Clause, and the First Amendment--are reshaping modern trademark law, have been outcome-determinative in many high-profile cases, and are fueling extremely influential debates in academic literature. Thus, the Seventh Edition of Trademarks and Unfair Competition has a newly enhanced focus on examining trademark law's place in the constitutional scheme. An entirely new chapter is devoted to the question of trademark law's interaction with the First Amendment. Throughout the casebook, great attention is paid to the constitutional and practical relationship of trademark law with other areas of intellectual property law. The casebook provides an in-depth presentation and analysis of the principal questions and problems in trademark law today, and a synthesis of the current and developing law. The organization provides students with a foundation in the historical and normative principles that have been governed and continue to govern trademark law's evolution, before progressively exposing them to more sophisticated and specific problems. Each section begins with an introductory overview followed by tightly edited cases and a summary of the issues, with analysis through notes and other secondary textual materials. Features of this new edition include: • A new chapter on Freedom of Speech and the Law of Trademarks and Unfair Competition; • The sea change in federal dilution law caused by the Trademark Dilution Reversion Act of 2006 and the cases interpreting it; • An in-depth analysis of the new and controversial issues centered on search engines, sponsored advertising, keywords, trademark use and initial interest confusion, and the trademark and constitutional principles that underpin this contentious debate in the courts and among scholars; • The continuing evolution of the law of fair use and nominative fair use after the Supreme Court's decision in KP Permanent Make-Up v. Lasting Impression I, and the normative impact of free speech considerations; and • The interaction of trade dress, design patent, copyright, and their respective constitutional foundations, as discussed in the Supreme Court's Twentieth Century Fox v. Dastar and Samara v. Wal-Mart and TrafFix Devices v. Marketing Displays decisions and by the lower courts in their aftermath. The Documentary Supplement for Trademarks and Unfair Competition contains the following updated material: • Rules of Practice of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; • ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy; • NAD / CARU / NARB Procedures; • Sample (Illinois) Right of Publicity Statute; • Trademark Law Treaty and Regulations; • Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement; • Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property; and • Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property.

This teachable casebook provides an introduction to the law and policy of modern communications. The book is organized by analytic concepts instead of current industry lines, which are constantly made out-of-date by technological convergence. The basic ideas--power, entry, pricing, access, classification, bad content, and intermediary liability--equip students with a durable and yet flexible intellectual structure that can help parse a complex and ever-changing field.This book includes concise technological and legal summaries and carefully edited opinions and FCC reports. It also includes "just-in-time" delivery of the text of statutes and regulations so that students get accustomed to parsing statutory material as they analyze legal questions.In this fifth edition, we have simplified wherever possible and minimized technological detail and regulatory history that were slowing down readers without sufficient pedagogical payoff.We hope to have created a comprehensive, challenging, yet accessible text that will pay long-lasting educational dividends.
