book is a comprehensive collection of cases, statutes, regulations and readings focused on the commercial development of new technologies, primarily by start-up and early-stage companies. It defines the technology innovation process as the set of decisions and actions by which an invention is transformed from a laboratory prototype into a commercially viable product or process; and defines the technology innovation period
as the time between the point of invention (reduction to practice) and the point of market introduction.
Technology Innovation Law and Practice addresses the gap in academic attention paid to the field of technology innovation. The book provides students, faculty and practitioners, both in law and other disciplines, with a single source of in-depth information on the laws that affect the technology innovation process. The book is unique in its interdisciplinary focus, in its emphasis on start-up and early-stage technology companies, and in its combination of instructional and reference materials.
