IP book

To paraphrase Bob Dylan, on the Budokan album (recorded in 1978), "I wrote this book, uh, about 10 years ago ... still means a lot to me, hope it means a lot to you." It's not Blowin' in the Wind, but it still has its uses. This is the third edition, and publishing it this way means there's never going to be any need to produce a fourth.
Here is the list of contents, with hyperlinks to the individual chapters. Some of them have health warnings until I get them up to date: today (13 May 2014) I have uploaded the five patents chapters, which leaves onlt database right and the last two chapters to bring up to date. And here for starters is a document I call an IP Roadmap, which gives you the very, very basics of IP law on one side of A4.
