Texas Intellectual Property Law, fourth edition, discusses the principles and practice of the law of trade secrets, trademark, copyright and related intellectual-property torts as the law is applied in Texas. It provides a careful analysis of existing law as codified in state and federal statutes, and as interpreted by Texas state and federal courts, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
Comprehensive in its citation to Texas authorities, this incisive fourth edition reflects the revisions by the Texas Legislature of the Texas Trademark Act and the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act, makes core topics like copyright, infringement, restrictive covenants and more, more immediately accessible to practitioners, and therefore more readily put to use than other standard reference tomes on the market.
Featuring extensive appendices of selected Texas and Federal statutes, selected Federal regulations, and Local Patent rules, Texas Intellectual Property Law equips practitioners with the primary material and clear guidance they need to effectively address the diverse intellectual property issues they confront in their day to day practice.
