Summer Intersession or Fall 2013 Initial Class Assignment for:
Instructor: Prof. Field
First class date: Monday, August 19
Posting date: Jul 29, 2013 @ 18:26:51
This course has one required text, which is Martin J. Adelman, et al.,
Cases and Materials on Patent Law (3d ed., West 2009). Additionally,
the 2013 Supplement to the Adelman casebook is also required. (Please
note that these are the only required books. The STCL bookstore may
have erroneously listed two additional titles —please disregard these
titles. Only the Adelman casebook and supplement are required.)
If you are looking for a reference book, I recommend Janice M.
Mueller, Patent Law (3d ed., Wolters Kluwer 2009). This book is
essentially a patent-law hornbook, geared towards students. Although
this book is not required, you may find it to be a valuable reference.
(This book should also be available in the STCL bookstore.)
The following are the assignments for our first two classes:
Monday, 8/19: pp. 1-27 and 40-48 in the Adelman, et al, casebook.
Please also download and read Fritz Machlup, “An Economic Review of
the Patent System,” and David Segal, “Has Patent. Will Sue,” both of
which are available on our course web site on Stanley (My Courses >
Patent Law > Files).
Wednesday, 8/21: pp. 58-69 and 76-88 in the Adelman, et al., casebook.
Please also download and read In re Bergy [EDITED VERSION] which is
available on Stanley (My Courses > Patent Law > Files). (If you have
trouble downloading any of the listed files, please e-mail me for
assistance at email@example.com.)
