Course Descriptions

Intellectual Property LAW-772

This is a survey course of the statutory and case law relating to patent, copyright, trademark, trade secrets and certain common law protections for intangible assets. We will adopt a practical approach to appreciate how IP rights, often in conjunction with contracts, are used to protect ownership rights and structure relationships among individuals and firms in technology and content markets as we explore the role of IP rights in both dispute-resolution and transactional practice areas.
