Texas Tech Law Review




Intellectual property refers to patents, trademarks, copyrights, and related matters. This subject has been absent from the symposium for two years. However, the importance of the cases in this area that were decided by the Fifth Circuit during the current survey period justifies a return of the subject to the symposium. The majority of these cases concern the validity of patents and are discussed in the first part of the Survey. The second part of the Survey is a discussion of an important case in the field of copyright law.
