A prolific writer and speaker, Britton published his first digital works on the internet in 1984.

Every other book I have seen on the subject of intellectual property put me to sleep. Unlike all of them, Britton doesn't merely define what terms mean - he gives you a practical understanding of what the terms mean from a smart business strategy sense. He conveys *functional knowledge* from his decades of experience as an intellectual property attorney. His approach grounds this otherwise abstract subject in reality, making it easy for anyone to understand and apply in the real world.
This is the most user-friendly book on intellectual property I have ever read and it comes with my highest recommendation.
Written by Brent C.J. Britton, a Silicon Valley veteran entrepreneur who has been practicing Intellectual Property law for over 15 years, "Ownability" clearly and competently guides the creative spirit through the broad brushstrokes of IP protection as well as many important intricacies. For example, the extent of the originality of the work may be a viable defense against a copyright infringement claim: Take that, sampled-music claims!
Such experience is skillfully and dutifully bestowed in this pleasant, readable, "roadmap," of a book. The guide's illustrations in particular bring fun and buoyancy to the thorough, helpful, subject matter. From trademarks and patents, to copyrights and trade secrets, "Ownability" is the creator's handbook for protecting oneself in the exhilarating world of turning ideas into assets and protecting them. It's a must for every creative's bookshelf!
