Finally...the long awaited Hein Online Intellectual Property Library

Hot off the press...and DEFINITELY worth a click is a new product that gets a four star review from me. We just flipped the switch on the long awaited Hein Online INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW COLLECTION. Focusing on copyrights, patents, and trademarks in the United States, the first release of this new ala-carte library includes the following materials:


  • More than 100 compiled legislative histories, which provide researchers with a complete history of copyright laws from 1909 to date
  • More than 270 books going back to the 1700's
  • Code of Federal Regulations Title 37 including many prior versions
  • U.S. Code Titles 17 & 35 including many prior versions
  • TTAB & BPAI Decisions
  • Manual of Patent Examining Procedure including many prior versions
  • More than 50 periodicals
  • Trademark of Manual Examining Procedure (soon)

This is just the beginning. Hein is aggressively looking to lead the way for IP scholars and practitioners.
