In-house counsel, attorneys, software designers, and students can gain new insights into intellectual property law in the electronic age-and discover the key to protecting their clients’, their company’s, or their own digital information, computer programs, and software-based inventions-with this updated handbook. Dr. Hollaar, registered patent agent, software and hardware developer, and lead technical expert in the Microsoft antitrust suit, has long been active in the interface between computer science and law. Now, the former Fellow with the United States Senate judiciary committee who advised on computer-related issues such as encryption, copyright and patent law, and regulation of the internet, has updated his insider’s guide to intellectual property law as it applies to digital material.
Drawing on his unique experience, Dr. Hollaar offers practical analysis of patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret law in the electronic age and presents critical information in clear, straightforward language. Originally created to teach software developers about types of intellectual property protection, what they protect and don’t protect, and why, this book presents the key material from a legal perspective, providing an excellent resource for attorneys, in-house counsel, and law and computer science students who want to gain a familiarity with intellectual property law in general, and in particular with how current law and case law protects software and other digital works. For those already knowledgeable in computer law and intellectual property, this book looks at some situations that have not been litigated or widely discussed and provides the author’s expert perspective.
