ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, announced today the publication of the November 2009 Supplement to Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations.
The main volume, Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations, is a convenient compilation of all the intellectual property regulations found in C.F.R. Volume 37, plus extra materials not published in Volume 37 -- agency policy pronouncements; citations to public laws, the Federal Register, and BNA's Patent, Trademark & Copyright Journal; vital information governing the operations of the Patent and Trademark Office, Copyright Office, and Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panels; and comprehensive indexes to help streamline legal research. In addition, each supplement includes summaries of new material for quick reference.
The November 2009 Supplement outlines:
- Final Copyright Royalty Board rules on notice and recordkeeping for use of sound recordings under statutory license
- Temporary copyright rules on fees for special handling of registration claims
- Interim Copyright Royalty Board rule implementing Copyright Act procedures for remands of final determinations
Supplemental material carried in previous supplements has been removed to reflect the PTO's rescission of claiming and continuations rules that have been in litigation.
Timely updates make the November 2009 Supplement to Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations a valuable resource for all IP practitioners. In addition, the loose-leaf format provides flexibility for adding new pages and substituting revised pages so that the volume, as a whole, stays current. The treatise is updated more often and includes more information than any available government compilation.
