This file comprises the casebook in its entirety, including the cover, table of contents, preface, and chapters covering historical and economic perspectives on patent law, an overview of the modern patent system, the patent document and its claims, subject matter eligibility, utility, disclosure, anticipation, obviousness, infringement, defenses, and remedies.

Keywords: patent law, patents, patent system, casebook, open source, history of patent law, economics of patent law, patent document and its claims, subject matter eligibility, utility, disclosure, anticipation, obviousness, infringement, defenses, remedies
