Competition"Celebrates 40 Years with Thomson Reuters
Professor J. Thomas McCarthy's treatise has been cited in more than 4,000
judicial decisions, including 10 U.S. Supreme Court opinions
EAGAN, MN, April 25, 2013 - The Intellectual Property (IP) and Science
business of Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent
information for businesses and professionals, today announced that Professor
J. Thomas McCarthy, nationally renowned author, attorney and a 2012 IP Hall of
Fame inductee, marks 40 years as a Thomson Reuters author. Professor
McCarthy's treatise "McCarthy on Trademarks and Unfair Competition" provides
authoritative information and analysis needed to successfully represent
clients in formulating, registering, licensing, protecting and litigating
trademarks and related rights.
Originally published in 1973 as two volumes, "McCarthy on Trademarks and
Unfair Competition" now spans seven volumes and has been cited and relied upon
as authority in more than 4,000 judicial opinions, including 10 from the U.S.
Supreme Court. The publication explains trademark law with clear, concise
analysis of cases and statutes, and offers how-to guidance for registering
trademarks, examination of defenses and analysis of international aspects of
trademark law. Topics covered by the more than 30 chapters include secondary
meaning, likelihood of confusion and territorial extent of trademark rights,
as well as literary, artistic and entertainment rights.
"Trademark law has become a very important field, so I am lucky and blessed
that I picked a specialty that thrived and grew over the years," said
Professor McCarthy. "Now that I am retired from teaching, I spend all of my
time reading new materials on trademark law and writing updates and changes to
my book. I am always delighted to see my book cited by judges, which means
that it's useful and that judges, as well as lawyers and practitioners, find
it helpful. "
Professor McCarthy is the recipient of many prestigious awards, including most
recently being inducted into the IP Hall of Fame, established and run by IAM
magazine. Professor McCarthy is also the founding director of the University
of San Francisco's (USF) McCarthy Institute for Intellectual Property and
Technology Law. The institute is named in his honor and he taught at USF for
36 years. In addition, Professor McCarthy is the author of a two-volume
treatise, "The Rights of Publicity and Privacy," a Thomson Reuters publication
on personality rights.
"We are thrilled to celebrate Professor McCarthy's 40 years with Thomson
Reuters," said Cynthia Murphy, senior vice president for the IP Solutions
business of Thomson Reuters. "His book is one of the top-selling Thomson
Reuters Legal Solutions titles in print and online, and we are proud to have
him as one of our authors. He has made significant contributions to the
practice and study of trademark law, and we commend his work."
