This is a detailed and sophisticated, yet concise, treatment of the rapidly expanding area of trademark and unfair competition law. All assertions in the text are supported by precise citations to the relevant authorities. In addition to providing a thorough explanation of the fundamentals of each topic, the text identifies those areas in which the law remains unsettled due to conflicting or sparse authorities, makes note of circuit splits and emerging trends in the law, and points the reader toward additional authorities that will enhance his or her understanding of each topic.

The Privacy Nutshell briefly reviews the historical roots of privacy, and then examines each of these U.S. privacy statutes and regulations. Virtually all governments and businesses face privacy considerations as technology continues to evolve. Legal issues related to privacy are exploding on the U.S. legal scene. The EU has a long history of a strong regulatory privacy regime. The U. S., however, follows a sectoral approach to privacy, whereby Congress responds to each privacy "crisis" with a new statute and set of regulations. This sectoral approach has resulted in a unique series of privacy rules for different areas of society. The Privacy Nutshell is an excellent introductory guide to the legal privacy world.
