These are the notes (or as law students fondly call it "outlines") that I took during my Patents course a few years back when I was in law school. Patent Law and Policy: Cases and Materials (5th Edition) by Robert Patrick Merges and John Fitzgerald Duffy was the course book I used. I purchased and downloaded this book through Kindle, which was nice because I didn't have to carry a giant book around and it was less expensive than the hard copy.
Full Disclosure: Each Patents course is different so you may have/will cover different cases than the ones that I've covered in my outline. But for the most part, you may have/will cover the same landmark cases, e.g., Bilski. Also, remember that I took this course a few years ago so we didn't cover cases that were decided after I took my course and that were decided more recently, e.g., Alice.
This is my outline from my Trademarks course a few years ago. I took Trademarks the semester after I took my Patents course. I am not sure which book we used, but if I'm able to find out, I will definitely post it on here. I did have to rent a hard copy of the book because I was not able to find an e-version of this text book.
Same disclosure as above, remember that each course is a little different so you may have/will cover different cases, but you will likely see the same landmark cases. Any recent cases will also not be covered in my outline. This outline is very thorough, however, (it's longer than my Patents one for some reason) so it should be helpful, especially if you're a law student. Download my trademarks outline here.
