The second chapter provides coverage of intellectual property law specific to New York, such as New York law respecting protection for ideas, protections for rights of publicity and privacy, parallel imports, deceptive acts and practices and trademark dilution.

Also included are:

  • A checklist of federal and state statutes that govern or are potentially pertinent to intellectual property disputes.

  • New York statutes that govern or may impact intellectual property rights.
