Less than a handful of casebooks are truly open source, in the sense of being fully modifiable. Patent Law: An Open-Source Casebook is the first patent law casebook that provides adopting professors, students, and others the ability to fully modify its contents. This chapter of the casebook begins with an overview of the patent right, then covers historical and economic perspectives, concluding with an overview of the modern patent system and document.
