Professor Trimble Reviews Cotter's Comparative Patent Remedies: A Legal and Economic Analysis

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Marketa Trimble recently reviewed Thomas F. Cotter's book Comparative Patent Remedies: A Legal and Economic Analysis (Oxford University Press 2013). 

Published on the Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog on April 30, 2013, Professor Trimble's review states that Comparative Patent Remedies "is an extremely timely and most welcome contribution to the comparative literature on intellectual property law and the law of remedies. . . .  In looking beyond U.S. borders, Cotter relies on his deep expertise in U.S. patent remedies from his previous publications. His knowledge enables him to detail a theoretical framework for remedies from a law and economics perspective (pp. 39-75), and it is within this framework that he presents his description and analysis of the law and practice of remedies in the United States (which covers slightly more than a fifth of the book – pp. 76-162), and several foreign countries, including the major patent litigation countries – the United Kingdom, Germany, and China. The coverage of countries is impressive because publications spanning this number of countries rarely appear in single-author monographs – they usually result from an international collaboration of several authors."  To read more of Professor Trimble's review, click here
