This is a detailed look at how to protect the four key areas of "intellectual property": trademarks; copyrights; patents; and trade secrets including customer lists, marketing plans, and other in-house documents. Written for a general business reader, the book shows that intellectual property is often a company's most valuable asset.
In our age of e-mail, e-commerce and Web sites, protecting intellectual property is harder than ever. This book serves four functions: it explains what intellectual property is; it alerts managers that they NEED to protect their intellectual property; it shows them how to protect it; and it presents ideas for how to "enhance" the value of their "property".
The book is packed with examples, offering tools for protecting intellectual property including: trademark and copyright application forms; sample employment agreements; an Internet usage policy; tips on preventing unauthorized dissemination of information via the Web; a guide for conducting an IP audit; and much more.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of intellectual property issues, suitable for among others high-tech executives, entrepreneurs, and investors in early stage companies all of which describe me.
Its coverage includes trademarks 6 chapters, 70 pages , copyrights 5 chapters, 68 pages , patents 4 chapters, 40 pages , and trade secrets 1 chapter, 18 pages , plus chapters on unfair competition, owning IP created by employees and independent contractors, and conducting internal IP audits. I have experience with software copyrights and biotechnology patents; this book is fairly strong on the former, but only briefly mentions the latter.
The material on internal IP audits is rather brief 12 pages but includes a fairly good audit checklist, and an action plan for protecting a company's IP; also, the first chapter should be required reading for managers, since it points out the many places in a business where valuable IP may be found, department by department. The writing is very clear -- certainly not "obtuse" as one reviewer claimed -- and the book is quite current, with good coverage of the Internet's impact on copyright and other IP issues, and coverage of recent changes in the law such as the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.
The book is a high-level overview for managers rather than a lawyer's or practitioner's guide, but it does describe the application process for trademarks, copyrights, and patents, all in reasonable detail. Yet this book is just pages of highly readable text -- not a huge tome -- which I think makes it suitable for managers, early stage investors, or board members, especially in high-tech companies.
In the interests of safety, we'll refrain from quoting this fine book by Deborah E. Bouchoux, a specialist in intellectual property who teamed with AMACOM to create that rarest of volumes: a straightforward book about law that is simple to read it's a formula she should patent.
This comprehensive volume covers the nuts and bolts of U. It also gives advice on how to protect your intellectual property and avoid infringement, and reports on the latest patent trends in high tech. Of most concern for general business managers, Bouchoux reviews how and why to conduct intellectual property audits within your organization. With intellectual property emerging as the new corporate treasure of the knowledge economy, we [ Why should your attorney be the only one who understands what you really own?
This is a good book about the general scope of IP law and regulations. The book contains a lot of practical guides for small business owners to do the basica IP practices in house. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to know the basics of IP law, respects other's IP rights and want to protect their own IP rights.
