Trade Dress & Design Law

Using the Book

Trade Dress & Design Law is the first US casebook exclusively devoted to examining the complicated array of intellectual property law regimes that protect innovative product appearances.

The 2014-15 Supplement contains extensive updates to the entire casebook. A lot has changed since the first edition. Stay up to date on the latest in design law.

We've created a new platform for students and professors to share resources related to design law. Learn more about how to join the design law community below.


Casebook

The casebook is intended to act as a foundation for several types of law school courses - from brief intensive seminars to semester length doctrinal courses. It's also a useful resource for practitioners and researchers of design law.

It covers relevant aspects of US trademark and copyright law. It extensively covers US design patent law, one of the only US casebooks to do so. And, it also covers sui generis design protection systems, with a special emphasis on European design protection.

Supplement

Since print can never keep up with the pace of litigation, we've created an electronic supplement for the Trade Dress & Design Law casebook.

It's freely available in all of the convenient formats for e-readers and laptops.

Resources

This website was designed to act as a web-based platform for teaching and learning about design law.

This is primarily accomplished through an innovative new file sharing system that allows students and professors to share just about anything. While we've started its database off with a lot of content that supplements the materials in the Trade Dress & Design Law casebook, the database is open to all students and professors of design law. In fact, we've also created separate portals for both groups - allowing professors to share teaching materials only with other professors if they choose.

In the future, we also plan to add case studies and tutorials for the public. Stay tuned!
