Status Details

This Restatement is projected to include Chapters on: Subject Matter and Standards, Scope of Protection, Ownership, Duration, Formalities, Rights and Limitations, and Infringement, among others. After discussion of the project at the January 2018 Council meeting, the Director agreed to designate a group to consider whether this project should use a format that differs from the typical Restatement format (see posted comment from Professors Balganesh, Dinwoodie, Menell, and Nimmer). The Director has asked the Projects Committee to perform this function.
