Practising Law Institute (PLI) has released the new Fifth Edition of Kane on Trademark Law: A Practitioner's Guide, a revised and expanded edition of the earlier Trademark Law: A Practitioner's Guide by Siegrun D. Kane.
Kane on Trademark Law provides vital new coverage of new TTAB rules governing inter partes proceedings, which, effective November 1, require prediscovery conferences, initial disclosures, and pretrial disclosures and deal with standard protective orders.
Kane on Trademark Law offers a completely rewritten chapter on dilution - with the emphasis on the Trademark Dilution Revision Act of 2006 and the pertinence of prior case law in light of the TDRA - as well as an expanded appendix with new forms and color photos of marks from leading cases. Other new developments examined in Kane on Trademark Law include various Internet-related issues; the increasing use of fraud as a defense in PTO and court actions; the relevance of surveys to the genericness issue; trademark damages; attorney-client privilege; the famous mark doctrine, and PTO filing procedures.
Kane on Trademark Law retains the essential focus of the earlier editions of Trademark Law, by providing comprehensive coverage of trademark law fundamentals, including practical guidance on how to select, search, use, reinforce, renew, defend, and expand trademarks.
Kane on Trademark Law: A Practitioner's Guide, Fifth Edition is written by Siegrun D. Kane (Morgan and Finnegan LLP, New York City). Kane on Trademark Law is $270 and is available for a 30-day free examination.
