Binder with November 2014 Supplement/Order #2507
November 2014 Looseleaf Supplement alone/ISBN 9781617465062/Order #2506

Addressing the requirements of rapidly changing IP laws

This convenient, one-volume compilation of all intellectual property regulations found in C.F.R. Volume 37 also includes extra materials not published in Volume 37—agency policy pronouncements; citations to public laws, the Federal Register, and Bloomberg BNA’s Patent, Trademark & Copyright Journal; vital information governing the operations of the Patent and Trademark Office, Copyright Office, and Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panels; and comprehensive indexes to help streamline legal research. In addition, each supplement includes vital summaries of new material for quick reference.

Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations is updated three times per year and contains more information than any available government compilation, which makes it an invaluable resource for intellectual property practitioners. In addition, the looseleaf format provides flexibility for adding new pages and substituting revised pages so that the volume, as a whole, stays current.  

The November 2014 Supplement is current through November 21, 2014, and adds the following: Copyright Office’s revised rules for recordation of transfers to reduce processing time and alleviate remitter concerns; overhauled rules to implement 17 U.S.C. §115 compulsory license for making and distributing music phonorecords; technical revisions to rules on mechanical and digital phonorecord delivery compulsory licenses; and updated rules to exempt certain cell phone modifications from circumvention prohibitions; and USPTO’s revision changing the phrase “Express Mail” to Priority Mail Express to conform to changes at the U.S. Postal Service.
