Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic (Fall 2019)
- Course Number: LAW-771
- Class Number: 03491
- Instructor: Jeffrey Pearlman
The Intellectual Property & Technology Law Clinic (IPTLC) represents artists, film-makers, small businesses, independent game developers and others who cannot afford to pay market rates for legal services. The IPTLC’s seminar curriculum stresses the importance of thinking through the complexities of intellectual property and technology law, and working to mitigate legal risks while seeking to meet the clients’ business and creative needs. Recent representative projects include: fair use analysis of movie clips included in a documentary film raising awareness about the challenges of stuntwomen in Hollywood; drafting a license agreement for designers whose work is exhibited and distributed through an online subscription service that allows anyone to experience 3D printing while also providing a promotional platform for 3D designers; advising a local entrepreneur regarding the selection of a restaurant name and trademark registration of the same. Clinic students often work with teams enrolled in the Advanced Games Program at the USC Cinema School’s Interactive Media & Games program, which educates and trains teams of students to produce new and innovative games and with film students enrolled in an advanced production class at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, which produces three documentary films each semester.
