All the main materials for the IP Survey course, Fall 2017, including the class plan, are posted here. The casebook for the course is free -- a Word filed posted on this page. There is a required book of IP statutes and treaties, one that you can take with you into practice: Paul Goldstein et al., Selected Statutes and International Agreements on Trademark, Copyright, etc., latest edition (Foundation Press).

 

For those students desiring a textbook to reinforce the concepts taught in this course, I recommend Stephen McJohn, Intellectual Property Examples and Explanations, 5th edition 2015 (Wolters Kluwer). It is not required.
