|The Idea Writers: Copywriting in a New Media and Marketing Era

Lowest used price: $4.99
List price: $18.00
Author: Teressa Iezzi
This book is a must read for any copywriter and anyone looking to understand the new realities of the brand creativity business.
A memorable slogan has been the cornerstone of every great ad campaign. In the past, writing one great headline could launch a career. But today's advertising campaigns are interactive, multi-platform and ongoing, and the copywriter's canvas is vast. At any given time, a copywriter may be conceiving a video game, writing a TV show, maintaining a Twitter feed, creating a mobile app or an interactive installation or, yes, writing a headline or a TV script.
While the best copywriters have always been brand storytellers, now that story can play out anywhere. The digital revolution put control in the hands of the people - the audience - now no longer just consumers, but active participants in a brand's story.
The art and science of advertising has gone from creating one-way messages to engaging audiences in ongoing conversations.
A new ad landscape means new opportunities for writers who now have the incredible opportunity to push brand narrative to places it's never been before and to actually create something so useful or entertaining that it generates its own audience. It also means that many of the rules of the past - while exceedingly worthy of study - are insufficient to guide the modern copywriter. Co-published with AdvertisingAge, The Idea Writers outlines the changing landscape of the advertising industry while providing useful how-to advice.
Filled with interviews from top creatives including:
Greg Hahn, Nick Law, Jeff Benjamin, Tim Delaney, Rei Inamoto, Lee Clow, Steve Simpson, Rick Condos, David Droga, Gerry Graf, Ty Montague, Calle and Pelle Sjonell, PJ Pereira, David Abbott and many more!

|Not So Obvious: An Introduction to Patent Law and Strategy - Third Edition
Lowest new price: $35.96
Lowest used price: $33.12
List price: $39.95
Author: Jeffrey Schox
The first edition of this book was written by Jeffrey Schox for his course "Patent Law and Strategy for Innovators and Entrepreneurs" at Stanford University. After an introduction to intellectual property, it answers the questions: How does the patent system work? What is an invention? Is the invention patentable? When should the patent application be filed? Does the invention infringe any patents? and Who owns the patent application? The second edition included the America Invents Act ("AIA"), which transformed the U.S. patent system from a "first-to-invent" system to a "first-inventor-to-file" system. This third edition includes a glossary and general edits.
