Douglas Clark. Patent litigation in China. Oxford University Press, c2011.

KNQ1215.C58 2011        

 

The rise of China's economy has led to a substantial increase in disputes involving intellectual property rights, including patents.  This book provides an overview of the patent litigation system in China.  It covers the tests for patentability grounds for invalidating patents before focusing on evidence gathering, litigation strategy and procedure, as well as considering defenses and remedies. The key differences between the Chinese, U.S. and other more mature patent systems are highlighted throughout the book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

William Eyre. The Real ID Act : privacy and government surveillance. LFB Scholarly Pub., 2011.

KF4791.E97 2011

 

Civil society in the United States in the 21st century has seen the abandonment of American concepts of individual freedom, privacy, expression and autonomy. This book explores the Real ID Act in this context, as an example of laws passed since September 2001 restricting civil liberties.  The author examines the Real ID Act as an unfunded mandate and vehicle for unconstitutional abridgement of First Amendment guarantees including political expression.
