The new Edition of this one-volume compilation of statutes for law students has been updated to include the most significant developments of the past year, including: The Trademark Dilution Revision Act of 2006, thoroughly overhauling the law of trademark dilution; The U.S. Safe Web Act, adding numerous provisions to the Federal Trade Commission Act that will allow the FTC to cooperate with foreign law enforcement authorities to combat on-line electronic fraud that crosses national boundaries; Regulatory developments, such as final regulations to implement the Patent and Trademark Office's new electronic filing system, more regulations clarifying the filing date requirements for patent re-examinations, and regulations to implement priority document exchanges between the U.S. PTO and Intellectual Property Offices in other countries; and Revisions to the language of Article 5 of the Madrid Protocol on Trademark Registration, along with a related Interpretative Statement.
