"Intellectual-property cases involve high monetary stakes. A company’s existence may depend on its innovations and the lawsuits. Clear and Convincing Evidence provides insight into every phase of intellectual property law and the battles that occur at the Patent Office and in the courtroom.
Anyone thinking that intellectual-property is unexciting will change their view after reading about George Gerstman’s career in this book. Some attorneys would be glad to have one memorable case during their professional life. Gerstman has one memorable case after another which he chronicles in this biography.
The diversity of cases is amazing. The book includes examples such as Gerstman's first case which went from the boxing ring to the courtroom to a case involving the arresting of a technician to get crucial evidence for the case, to being held hostage in Harlem trying to enforce a federal court order, to testifying as a patent expert witness on behalf of some of the largest corporations in the world in patent cases. Find out how the protection of computer software got its start and how videogames became protected by the courts. The book provides an intriguing look into intellectual property law as it has never been seen before."
