Intellectual property is a broad, popular field of practice that has significant ramifications for lawyers of many kinds. This installment of TYL In Focus surveys this complex area by offering a primer on the lingo of IP law, an overview of trademark basics for general practitioners, and a look at copyright and works made for hire. The issue also delves into the protection of trade secrets and the intersection of fair use and the First Amendment. As added bonuses, articles on 3D printing and Albert Einstein’s rights of publicity in the modern world, from Landslide magazine, are included. A valuable resource for new and experienced attorneys, this digital issue is available for free to members of the ABA. (Published July 2014, copyright American Bar Association.)
