Abstract:

This chapter will focus on the overlap of IP protection in compilations of facts. It will look at copyright protection for the selection and arrangement of the facts contained in a database, and it will look at the other theories that provide protection for the facts themselves. In the Information Age, there are countless circumstances under which one entity will seek to reuse information that has been published by another entity, and the IP practitioner must be able to advise his or her clients when such reuse is permissible.
