Main Volume Information

Intellectual Property Law in Cyberspace, Second Edition, co-published with the American Intellectual Property Law Association, is the critical resource practitioners need to protect and enforce clients' IP rights as they relate to the internet.

The treatise offers the most up-to-date information on this cutting-edge area of law, with discussion of such important topics as how the domain name system works, the latest on dispute resolution policies, and new registration options-plus step-by-step instructions on registering domain names under various registration proposals; administrative dispute resolution policies proposed and implemented by domain name registrars-and how to protect registrations from challenges; and the application of trademark law to internet concepts such as metatags, hyperlinking, framing, and spamming.

The Second Edition provides important insight on using and protecting copyrighted and trademarked works on the internet. It also contains an in-depth discussion of protecting content online, including trade secrets; an examination of new wrinkles in legal technology, such as the intellectual property issues raised by email, blogs, podcasts, news aggregators, and online search tools; updated analyses of jurisdictional issues and the internet; and a chapter devoted to the proliferating legal issues surrounding online gaming and virtual property.
