Patent, Trademark and Copyright Laws, 2019 Edition, with Full Text and Special Features on CD-ROM

by Law



Patent, Trademark and Copyright Laws provides intellectual property practitioners with the most important patent, trademark, and copyright laws in the U.S. Code in one convenient volume. The treatise fully incorporates the provisions of the America Invents Act into the U.S. Code sections of the book.

The 2019 Edition of Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Laws adds the following new developments: 

  • The provisions of the Music Modernization Act, which amends the Copyright Act to create a licensing process for streaming services, creates royalty rights for owners of copyrights in pre-1972 recordings, and provides royalties to sound engineers and music producers for use of recordings on which they worked.

  • The amendments to the Copyright Act implementing the Marrakesh Treaty of 2013, an international treaty to help disabled people access books.

  • The Success Act, which extends for eight years the USPTO’s fee-setting authority and directs the office to recommend how to promote the participation of women, minorities, and veterans in the patent system.

  • Legislation relating to Fiscal Year 2019 appropriations for the USPTO and the Copyright Office.

  • Legislation that requires the USPTO and the Small Business Administration to partner on the development of high-quality training on intellectual property to small business.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains the full text of the book and additional useful material, such as the Rules of Practice of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, key international treaties, and legislative history relating to patent reform proposals.
