Dear Friends of Trademark Law: An Open-Source Casebook,
I’m writing to announce that Version 6.0 of the casebook is now available in .pdf, .doc, and in print on a royalty-free at-cost basis through Amazon. You can find all the relevant links on the front page of the casebook website: https://www.tmcasebook.org/. I’m attaching a summary of updates. A redline against Version 5.0 is available on the casebook website under the Faculty Resources tab.
Thanks as always to the many of you have written to me with edits and corrections, and thanks for your continued support of this kind of free casebook.
Thanks for doing this. Looking forward to teaching from it again this fall.
One heartfelt request: please, please do not make Gordon v. Drape Creative the only Rogers case. It is a decided outlier; every other case but one has applied Rogers to protect speech, and it will give students the wrong impression. Fine to pair it with a case to show different approaches, but I worry about a 180 degree reversal of course.
