Featuring succinct yet in-depth exploration of the protection of trade dress and designs under the laws of trademark and unfair competition, design patent, copyright, and sui generis protection regimes. This book can be used as the main text in an advanced course devoted to trade dress and designs, or may be used as a supplemental text for a variety of intellectual property courses. A substantial chapter on European design laws is also included.
