“When the book arrived, I was not disappointed. I actually read it cover to cover, which may be a confession that I am a legal geek but nonetheless points to the book’s readability, despite its highly technical subject matter. It starts with a discussion of the “Principles of Likelihood of Confusion” and ends with an Appendix of full color illustrations and a Table of Cases. Likelihood of Confusion in Trademark Law is logically ordered and flows as a complete work. Each subsection has helpful headings so that the reader can locate the information that may be useful in his/her particular case.” “This book also includes a plethora of footnotes that are on point, unobtrusive and helpful to explain the text.” “Likelihood of confusion is a subtle, complicated area of law and clearly worthy of a comprehensive reference volume on the subject, especially one as lively as this book.” “Two particularly strong points in the book are its cases cites and use of examples.” “Kirkpatrick expertly weaves pithy and longer quotes from court cases into his discussion in the text, and he also gives just enough concrete examples to help illustrate his points.” “I believe this text is a useful addition to any trademark attorney’s repertoire.”
