Each chapter now includes a section that clearly introduces the fundamentals of the IP law aspect highlighted in the chapter. Each chapter also includes a new section dedicated to emerging Issues.
Case coverage is revised in two important ways: the bulk of the case analyses have been moved to a second volume, Case Analyses for Intellectual Property Law and New Media (Baron, Lamoureux, and Stewart); and references to cases in the primary text direct readers to pertinent sections in the new book.
The coverage allows this second edition to serve as an excellent resource for undergraduates studying interactive media, as well as being a primer for first year IP law students, a handbook for entrepreneurs, a guidebook for general lawyers to assist in referrals, and an interesting read for those simply curious about the field.
The books are supplemented by freeforafee.com, a blog providing textual updates, online links to bibliographic materials, and extensive resource aggregation. Learning objectives for each chapter and a glossary of key terms is provided within the texts.
A book of this complexity requires extensive cooperation and coordination. The authors are appreciative of each other’s unique perspectives. We are also deeply indebted to Marc Cooperman and Robert Resis, two Chicago-based lawyers specializing in intellectual property law. Marc and Robert authored significant portions of the case analyses presented in the book. The initials of the author for each section appear at the end of material for which they were primarily responsible.
We offer heartfelt thanks to series editor Steve Jones for his confidence in us and for his patience with the extended timeline required for a book of this nature. Editors, production, and marketing staff at Lang, especially Mary Savigar, Bernadette Shade, Sophie Appel, and Patty Mulrane, deserve praise for both professionalism and care.
Lamoureux and Baron (sometimes joined by Stewart) teach a course about intellectual property law in new media at Bradley University. They wish to thank their students for the insightful papers, projects, and class discussions that have made significant contributions to this book. Bradley colleagues Jeff Huberman, Jim Ferolo, Howard Goldbaum (now at Univ. Nevada, Reno), and ← xi | xii → Paul Gullifor deserve special recognition for their leadership. Administrative support by Joan Wilhelm, Carrie Kroenke, Trudy Ruch, Jan Ringenberg, and Vicki Tomblin enables our collaboration.
