      In , the US Congress passed additional legislation, 'The Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of ', to promote domestic intel- lectual property rights, but the legislation was vetoed by President Reagan.

III of Pub. L. No. , 98 Stat. , (Nov. 8, ), codified at 17 U.S.C. §§ et seq. Overview The Act extended legal protection to a new form of subject matter — semiconductor chip mask works — in order.

    The Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of established intellectual property protection for photomasks used to produce integrated circuits. A diplomatic conference was held at Washington, D.C., in , which adopted a Treaty on Intellectual Property in . Unfortunately, the Chip Act passed by Congress was adapted to the realities of the s, not the s. After seven years, only one appellate opinion involving the Chip Act has been reported. 8. The "vital protection" provided by the Chip Act has played only a small part in protecting the rights of chip makers.

    THE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIP PROTECTION ACT: AN ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF A "VALUE-ADDED" APPROACH I. INTRODUCTION The computer chip industry recognizes and accepts reverse engineering (an advanced form of copying) as a legitimate form of competition.1 Enacted in , the Semiconductor Chip Protection Act2 provides protection to semiconductor. The Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of created a highly specialized form of intellectual property, the registered mask work. Semiconductor masks are detailed transparencies representing the topological layout of semiconductor chips. Trademarks.

SEMICONDUCTOR CHIP PROTECTION special cake, one layer at a time. Each layer of the cake is a different type of semiconductor material, i.e., a different flavor. It is the combi-nation of layers that makes every design unique.

The "flavor" and the shape of the layers determine the circuit's characteristics. The United States Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of (“SCPA”') has already had a profound impact on the creation of foreign legal systems of chip protection.

The allure of reciprocity under the SCPA has motivated a host of nations, including Japan, the Member States of the European Communities (“EC”'). tor Chip Protection Act of The Act protects the the relatively short useful econcxnic life of a particular chip.
