The Third Edition of “The Law of Assignment” The intangible property or chooses in action law PDF ebook is widely regarded as the authoritative legal reference work in this area. Its straightforward and user-friendly structure encompasses all types of intangible property, including intellectual property, debts, securities, rights under contract, leases, rights/causes of action, and equitable rights, and takes into account the nature of intangible property, including how it is created and how it is transferred or assigned to new owners.
