Book Recommendation: Software IP

I have been working with software-related intellectual property issues for several years now.  I finally broke down and bought a book to help me get the big picture.  The following book has been remarkably helpful:
Intellectual Property and Open Source: A practical guide to protecting code
Van Lindberg
O'Reilly, 2008
I have been quite surprised how well Lindberg describes the complex legal issues related to intellectual property law.  Lindberg is a lawyer and software developer, and he uses computer science analogies that are quite straightforward.
