The Business of Intellectual Property

Oxford University Press, 2008

KF2979.A92 2008

 

In The Business of Intellectual Property, the authors explain the growing importance of intellectual property assets from both legal and business perspectives, and offer strategic advice on how to manage IP assets for competitive advantage, profitability and return on investment.  This book combines statutory frameworks, case law, business and legal principles of accounting and valuation, and multiple case studies of successful companies, to give readers examples of how to integrate such processes into their company's operations.

 

Mark Tushnet (ed.)

I Dissent : Great Opposing Opinions in Landmark Supreme Court Cases

Beacon Press, c2008

KF8742.I35 2008

 

In this book, the author has gathered famous dissents as he considers the question: how might our history appear now if these cases in the highest court in the country had turned out differently?  Tushnet introduces and explains sixteen influential cases from throughout the Court's history, putting them into political context and offering a sense of what could have developed if the dissents were instead the majority opinions.
