United States Intellectual Property Law Overview
The materials in this section of the site contain broad, general statements which may not seem accurate in particular cases. Their objective, however, is to serve as a thumbnail sketch and not a whole painting. The main U.S. Federal statutory regimes are covered very briefly, along with some material on the legal concept of "idea protection". For the sake of simplicity, where appellate cases are discussed, the parties are referred to as they were in the trial court.
