US IP Law Book Resource

I am grateful to Dennis Crouch of the excellent American blog Patently O for attracting my attention to a wonderful new resource offered by US patent attorney James Hawes (“Website: Comprehensive Intellectual Property Law Book Reviews”). I have visited Mr Hawes’s site and recommend it.

More than 170 IP law and practice books are said to be reviewed on that website. They are arranged in 4 main groups “Patents”, “Trade Marks”, “Copyrights” and “Licensing” (all of which are subdivided) and smaller groups for trade secrets, unfair competition and anti-trust and general and miscellaneous. There are a few titles on foreign law but the only one on English law that I refer to occasionally is the “CIPA European Patents Handbook”. However, there were plenty of US authors we know well on this side of the Atlantic such as Nimmer and Scott.

I have bookmarked this site and it will certainly be my first port of call when I require further elucidation on what is to European eyes a very exotic jurisprudence.


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.

    John – Thank you very much for the mention of the site, and for the nice things you had to say about it. If you see any way it can be improved, or made more helpful to US IP attorneys, I hope you will let me know. Jim Hawes
