This best-selling supplement contains materials that can be used with any contracts casebook. Recent editions have received a significant makeover while retaining the basic, popular features. Most notably, the supplement now includes short annotations that introduce each selection. These annotations put each selection in context by explaining its origins, central purpose(s), scope of application, and current legal status. Students will better understand the selection's point, purpose, and content; and teachers will have less need to explain an assigned selection's context. In addition, the 2013 edition includes excerpts from Regulation Z under the Credit Card Act, the newer edition of the UNIDROIT Principles, the European Union's 2011 Directive on Consumer Rights and the European Commission's proposal for a European sales law. The annotations, conjoined with its inclusiveness, currency, and convenience, offer a significant comparative advantage over competing volumes and materials.

John Harrison, ein schottischer Uhrmacher, setzte sich ein ehrgeiziges und unmöglich erscheinendes Ziel: eine Methode zu ersinnen, die es Seeleuten ermöglicht, den genauen Längengrad ihrer Position auf See zu bestimmen. Über vierzig Jahre arbeitete Harrison wie besessen an der Herstellung eines perfekten Chronometers und kam schließlich — trotz Missgunst und zahlreicher Anfeindungen — zum Erfolg. Dava Sobels in luzider Prosa erzählte Geschichte dieser wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche wurde ein überwältigender internationaler Erfolg.

The new edition has also been enhanced to improve readability. This new edition also incorporates the provisions of the just enacted Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 along with recent amendments to the patent statute and to the customs regulations relating to parallel importation. Of course the volume retains all the basic IP statutes along with numerous useful additional materials such as provisions of the Restatement of Unfair Competition, and the text of numerous international agreements dealing with intellectual property law, including the relatively new Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs and the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances. The availability of all these materials in a single comprehensive volume which can be annotated by students makes it possible to use classroom time more efficiently and will enhance student learning throughout the IP curriculum.

Der zerstreute Professor Timofey Pnin ist ein einsamer Individualist, den der American Way of Life tief verstört. Der Immigrant wirkt auf seine Umwelt wie ein komischer Versager. Aber seine Würde, sein Ernst, seine Persönlichkeit lassen ebendiese Umwelt lächerlich erscheinen: Sie versagt an ihm. Alles, was Pnin widerfährt, macht uns diesen altmodischen russischen Gelehrten liebenswert. «Ein Wunderwerk des Humors. Ein Jahrhundertroman.» (Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Der Spiegel)
