    Poorly Updated; Poorly Edited, January 24, 2011

    This review is from: Legal Aspects of Managing Technology (Paperback)

    I purchased this book for a class, and so far I am very disappointed in this book. For being a recent edition, some of the information is very out of date. For example, the book references BountyQuest as a means of searching for prior art in patents, yet fails to realize that the BountyQuest website shut down in 2002 (remember, this edition of the book was (c) 2010). Also, I’m only 4 chapters in and I have already found some glaring spelling and editing errors in the book (“little” spelled “lilttle”).

    The text of the book is well-written and easy to understand, but better editing and updating would have made me a much more satisfied purchaser.

    Update: Also found “Mastercard” spelled “Matercard.” Whoops…

    This book is the main text for the “Legal Issues in Technology” (SEIS 650) class I am taking this fall at the University of Saint Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota.

    It gives one a general overview of intellectual property rights from a technology perspective in the United States, and to some extent in the international space. In particular, one gets a basic understanding of key legal issues surrounding the protection of trade secrets, copyrights, patents, trademarks, and contractual rights pertaining to computer technology and the internet.

    This is done through the study of several well written and summarized descriptions of past and current legal cases and decisions made in the United States court system, and also from the perspective of a hypothetical company CoolEdge that is the business of selling an exercise machine called Optimizer. One thing that is made very apparent is the constantly evolving nature of legal constructs and policies, and how they have had to continuously adapt along with changing aspects of technology in the United States and the rest of the world.

    All of this covered in 14 chapters and 644 pages, plus two more online – which we did not cover in class. This is a general education book and very well meets it’s goal of leaving the reader with an excellent understanding of the various legal issues raised by computer technology. Also with an awareness and need for everyone involved in high technology enterprises to keep abreast of developments in these areas as we continue going about meeting our business and societal goals. If there was something I did not like about the book, is that it did not have questions at the end of each chapter to test and improve one’s grasp of concepts and issues discussed, or a list of further readings and references.

    Hot Field, Hot Book!, October 30, 2000

    Call this book Release 2.0! It’s a fine upgrade from Prof. Burgunder’s prior release.

    With the growth in the internet and the advent of business method patents, interest in patent, trademark and copyright issues has surged to new heights. Awareness and integration of these legal aspects into our management of technology is absolutely vital for the future.

    I practice law. Specifically, I work on intellectual property matters. I am also building two websites. As a result, I am keen on staying on top of my field. Professor Burgunder’s new treatise is an important addition to the literature in this field. He writes in an accessible manner: open to students, interested people and legal practitioners alike. In addition, the arrangement of the book is well thought-out: you don’t have to read or study it from the first chapter. Depending on your familiarity with this field, you can select topics and areas to review or you can build a college course around the book.

    I was also delighted to see that Dr. Burgunder has been intelligent in the use of a web site to keep the book current.

    If you are interested in technology and legal issues, this is a great book to help you! I recommend it heartily.
