Carolina Academic Press has published the third edition of Professor Amy Landers’ “Understanding Patent Law,” a book that provides a comprehensive grounding in the subject.
This edition includes updates on a variety of groundbreaking cases that have emerged since the second edition was released in 2012 and features a new section on the impact of Gunn v. Minton and T.J. Heartland v. Kraft Foods on patent litigation.
In addition, a volume that Landers co-edited, "Intellectual Property and the Public Domain," has been published by Edward Elgar Publishing. Landers edited the book with Robert P. Merges, the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati Professor of Law and Technology at the University of California, Berkeley. The book features key papers that examine various justifications for a rich repository of publicly-available information, including policies favoring robust competition, free speech, and scientific and technological advance.
Landers is accomplished as both a scholar and practitioner, having also co-authored “Global Issues in Intellectual Property Law” and “Global Issues in Patent Law” and practicing at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in Silicon Valley, California, where she was a partner.
