With the relocation of Big Tech companies to Texas increasingly hitting the news, the need for a seasoned understanding of the existing law cannot be overstated. Texas Intellectual Property Law, fourth edition, provides precisely that, the knowledge and experience of a lawyer praised as a top lawyer in Texas and a "thought leader" in the IP field. The book covers the principles and practice of the law of trade secrets, trademark, copyright and related intellectual-property torts as the law is applied in Texas. Designed for practitioner use, it is accessible and comprehensive
in its citation to Texas authorities and offers thorough analyses 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.
Now completely updated, the new fourth edition reflects the significant changes in the law that have occurred since the previous edition in 2016 was published, namely, cases decided under The Texas Trade
Secrets Act (TUTSA), which replaced 50 years of jurisprudence on common-law
trade-secret misappropriation in 2013, the recent amendments to TUTSA, the federal
Defend Trade Secrets Act passed by Congress in 2016, and critical U.S.
Supreme Court and Fifth Circuit decisions in copyright and trademark cases. The appendix further provides direct links to the necessary Texas and federal statutes and federal regulations.
Property Law, fourth edition, equips its readers with the primary material and expert guidance they need to effectively gauge the winds of change in Texas and manage the diverse intellectual property
issues they will confront in their day-to-day practice.
