dc.description.abstractDefines the distinction between a copyright and a patent. By using the Rosenthal case as an example, the author explains that an idea cannot be copyrighted because doing so would destroy competition and withdraw it from public use, both of which are antithetical to the goal of copyright. The author continues exploring copyright by examining the court’s test of protectable idea v. unprotectable idea.en_US
