3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert on October 17, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I was not a fan of using this casebook in class. The best casebooks present all views in their greatest vigor, allowing students and professors to engage all sides of legal arguments. This casebook, however, is written by several professors/practitioners with personal axes to grind presenting but a single view of patent law throughout the book. There are lively issues for debate in modern day patent law regarding conditions of patentability, the appropriate levels of protection, the manner in which claims should be used during patent infringement litigation among numerous others - but none of these discussions come through in this casebook.

Instead, this casebook functions as nothing less than an homage to the late patent jurist Giles Rich, with whom several of the authors were closely connected. Although Judge Rich had an outsize impact on the evolution of patent jurisprudence in this country, this does not mean that in studying the field of patent law we should blindly follow a What-Would-Judge-Rich-Do? philosophy in all study of this field forevermore.

On a separate note, the cases tend to be on the long side as edited cases in casebooks go. When law students have many cases to read on a daily basis, long cases in casebooks tend to be counterproductive. But this is a matter up for debate about which I'll admit reasonable people may disagree. The authors of this casebook, however, brook no dissent.
