Reviews

From the reviews:

“This well-written book provides an exceptional overview and introduction to current and emerging IP law and practice of importance to those in electrotechnology fields. … this is one of the best handbooks on applied IP practice that I have ever seen. It is specifically intended for entrepreneurs in the electronics and computer fields. … I highly recommend this book … to all innovators, practitioners, and students of IP policy who must understand and apply IP protections in their day-to-day work.” (A. G. Larson, Computing Reviews, February, 2014)
