The June 2017 Edition of Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Laws

  • Includes provisions of the “American Innovation and Competitiveness Act,” Pub. L. 114-329 (Jan. 6, 2017) amending the “Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980”

The accompanying CD-ROM contains the full text of the book, allowing for easy searching, plus recent legislative activity and additional useful material, such as the Rules of Practice of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, key international treaties, and legislative history relating to patent reform proposals. The June2017 Edition adds the text of pending legislation introduced during the first few months of the 115th Congress, including H.R. 1695, the “Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act of 2017” (passed April 26, 2017 by a vote of 378-48), which would amend the Copyright Act to provide that the Register of Copyrights shall be appointed by the President (rather than by the Librarian of Congress) for a 10-year term, subject to reappointment. To aid your research, the CD-ROM also provides an easy-to-use chart showing all of the patent law revisions contained in the Act, as well as their effective dates, and a full legislative history of the Act.
