Trademark Law Guide From CCH Is Dedicated Resource for Practitioners
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., November 7, 2003) -- Attorneys involved with trademark law now have a dedicated resource: the all-new Trademark Law Guide from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business law information. Clear and comprehensive, this reporter provides federal and state laws and regulations, full text of court and agency decisions, and incisive explanations from an acknowledged authority on intellectual property.
"Until now, there’s been no comprehensive resource dedicated exclusively to trademark law," said Pamela Maloney, Managing Editor in CCH’s Business and Finance Group. "Practitioners have had to sift through copyright and patent-related material to find the nuggets of trademark information they’re looking for."
Because it's organized by subject matter, the Trademark Law Guide is easy to reference. Treatise-style explanations cover qualification as a mark; federal registration; registration maintenance and renewals; state and foreign registration; likelihood of confusion; trademark dilution; civil litigation; Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings; and Internet disputes. Explanations contain legal citations and direct links to the full text of many relevant decisions.
Primary Sources, New Developments
The Trademark Law Guide includes a compendium of primary-source law. Federal laws include full text of the Lanham Act and the Cyberpiracy Law, as well as statutes relating to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Federal regulations include Rules of Practice before the Patent and Trademark Office. State trademark laws also appear in full text. The text of all historic U.S. Supreme Court trademark decisions is included as part of an archive of key historical court decisions. The recently updated Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Manual of Procedure is also included, complete with its appendix of forms.
Monthly updates feature new legislation and regulations, judicial and agency developments, a list of pending legislation, and an informative newsletter.
New developments covered in the Guide include the U.S. Supreme Court docket, court decisions, selected published and unpublished decisions of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and relevant articles.
"Having a monthly newsletter focused entirely on developments in trademark law is an invaluable aid to the practitioner who needs to keep current in this field," Maloney noted.
