- Learning International IP: A relatively new patent-attorney asks the following question: “I find myself very unfamiliar with foreign patent practice. Could you recommend a book/other resource that discusses the intricacies of patent prosecution in foreign countries from the point-of-view of a US patent practitioner?” Suggestions?
- Learning by Watching: Professor Beckerman-Rodau is spearheading an IP Podcast series available for free from Suffolk Law. [LINK]
Learning IP Theory: Three fairly new books recently arrived in the mail. All would be considered left leaning.
- Property Outlaws: How Squatters, Pirates, and Protesters Improve the Law of Ownership by Peñalver and Katyal. The book explains benefits of occasional disregard of private property.
- The Soul of Creativity: Forging a Moral Rights Law for the United States by Kwall. The book argues that “moral rights” should be part of US copyright law. Although Kwall focuses on the personal experience of authorship, her arguments are difficult (for me) to distinguish from those regarding the personal experience of invention.
- The Future of the Internet–And How to Stop It by Zittrain. The book is about battle over control of the internet or how the internet is increasingly controlled.
