The text we will use for Patent Law (Law 772) will be Patent Law and Policy, 5th edition by Merges and Duffy, LexisNexis 2011, ISBN 978-1-4224-8030-4. Please note that a loose leaf version of this text is available as ISBN 978-1-4224-8029-8. The loose-leaf version has a significantly lower price and the students seemed to prefer it last year. The bookstore is aware of the loose-leaf version and should have it available.
The first week reading assignment (for Monday, 7 January 2013) is:
Chapter 1 (pp 1-66) – skim pages 1-13; read 13-66 for discussion
Chapter 2 (pp 67-107) – prepare the cases for presentation in class
