3.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro at a Steep Price December 21, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK, it covers the basics in a fairly easy-to-read format and moves right along. It is a well-designed, reader-friendly book, but a bit repetitive. The same statements appear in the intro, in the middle, and in the end summary of each chapter.

I take off one star simply for cost. No way is this intro-level material worth over 100 bucks. This is a $20 book in gold plating.

Another star off for quite a number of spelling errors and other typos and goofs (repeated sentence/para fragment, etc.) that should have been caught in proofreading. Hard to believe these are still being carried along in the THIRD EDITION. These little glitches don't interfere with the usefulness of the book, but given the price, they owe us a PERFECTLY PROOFED text. Everybody else gets it right--why can't this team? And, a working paralegal who made these types of errors could be fired. It's ironic and silly for the book to contain such goofs.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this textbook July 22, 2013
By Betty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I usually don't write reviews, but want to write about this textbook as it was really great. So much detail, but so logically connected that it's easy to understand the complex world of trademark, copyright, patents and trade secrets. Some people might say that it's a bit repetitive, but this is what worked great for me, because after reading 10 chapters after learning a concept, reading about the same concept in a different setting made everything easier to comprehend. Thanks to this book I got a huge A in my paralegal IP class.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the head knowledge part July 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Now that I work in Intellectual Property, there's a LOT more to it than what you learn in the books. That being said, if you need clear definitions on basic concepts or vocabulary, this is a great resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book January 21, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book explains IP law very well. It is comprehensive. It is well written and easy to understand. While it is thorough and often complex because IP law is complex. It is NOT full of legal jargon that serves no purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pain without payoff. Holy Jeebus. June 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Horrible editing, confusing and disjointed writing, very little information that could not be found on a half-decent Wikipedia page or even from the USPTO.

This was the second quarter my department used this text for IP classes.

The department is already looking for a replacement.

Buy this book used. You won't want to keep it.
