Raymond T. Nimmer, Jeff C. Dodd
Modern Licensing Law, 2006 Edition, Thomson/West, c2005.

KF3145.Z9M64

Seeing licensing as the most common transactional form for trafficking in commercial information assets that now serve as the foundations of our modern economy, the authors aim to provide an integrated coverage of all areas of this body of law. The topics thus covered include contract, intellectual property and antitrust considerations in licensing transactions; licensing in digital and online industries; financing of intellectual property assets; and crucial provisions in licenses, including royalties, granting clauses, and warranties. This current edition focuses on the entire complex of laws, decisions, traditions and practices that comprise what is the modern law of licensing. The authors, however, intend in future editions to offer chapters devoted to more specialized topics.

 

 

Craig N. Johnston, William F. Funk, Victor B. Flatt
Legal protection of the environment, Thomson/West, c2005.

KF3775.A7J64 2005

In order to portray the current status of environmental law, this casebook covers the broad range of federal environmental law with emphasis on the National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Water Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, the Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund), and the Endangered Species Act. Another area of emphasis are the enforcement provisions by which government agencies or citizens can enforce statutory or regulatory requirements on violators. It omits discussion of the theoretical and policy issues that underlie environmental statutes and their implementation in regulations, and devotes a limited coverage of the constitutional, administrative, and common law aspects of environmental law as separate areas of study. This book thus shows how significant environmental programs operate, and demonstrates how remaining ambiguities are resolved by both agencies and the courts.
