Law Journal Press* has a handful of Intellectual Property titles available to Jenkins' members on their desktops.
One such title is Copyright and The Public Domain by attorney and copyright law expert, Stephen Fishman.
While public domain can broadly be defined as the "status of an invention, creative work, commercial symbol, or any other creation that is not protected by any form of intellectual property" (Fishman quoting McCarthy, 1 Trademarks and Unfair Competition, § 1:30 (2007)), this book addresses the more limited sense of the term that refers to "works of authorship not protected by the federal copyright law" (Fishman, § 1.01 (2018)). The 2018 release of this title is timely, both in terms of content (topics include a Ninth Circuit ruling regarding a "selfie" taken by a monkey, emojis, and algorithms used to analyze commodities market data) and because the public domain is schedule to expand for the first time in twenty years, starting on January 1st, 2019.
Other titles in LJP's Intellectual Property practice area touch on topics such as broadband, patent law reform, electronic discovery, and cyber law and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
To access these items, once in Law Journal Press, look for the "Practice Area" drop down and select "Intellectual Property."
