Professors Cross, Smith publish faculty books in IP law

Brandeis School of Law Professors John Cross and Lars Smith both have faculty books published or to be published in the area of IP law.

Cross is one of four IP experts from around the country who contributed to Intellectual Property Law published by LexisNexis. Other contributors include Doris Estelle Long, Professor of Law and director for the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law at The John Marshall Law School; Greg R. Vetter, Professor of Law and Law Foundation Professor and director for the Center for IP and Information Law at the University of Houston Law Center; and Peter K. Yu, Professor of Law and co-director of the Center for Law and IP at Texas A&M University School of Law.

In Intellectual Property Law, the authors include balanced coverage of the "old chestnuts" in IP law, as well as recent cases and hot topics covered by the mainstream media. Apart from trade secret, patent, copyright, and trademark laws, significant portions are devoted to other issues, such as the right of publicity, protection of product design, and the limits on IP protection.

Also, Smith's forthcoming Bitcoin Law book is expected to be published in 2016 by Edward Elgar Publishing as part of the Elgar Law, Technology and Society Series.
