Course Description:

SPECIAL NOTES REGARDING SESSION DATES/TIMES/ROOM: This traditionally full-semester course will be compressed between August 26 -September 11, 2015.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The principal aim of this course in intellectual property is to provide a general grounding in copyright, patent, and trademark law, as well as certain of their common law antecedents and cousins such as trade secret law and unfair competition. The course will touch briefly on the main policies and theories motivating IP law, including utilitarianism and natural rights theories. This course is appropriate both for a single exposure to intellectual property law and as an introductory course to advanced courses and seminars.

Course Requirement:A take-home examination will be distributed on the last day of the course in a sealed envelope, and students are on their honor to write answers to the questions during the stated time upon opening the envelope, and to upload their answer document to LawWeb shortly thereafter. An answer document must be submitted to LawWeb by 4:30 pm (EST) on September 25, 2015.
Mutually Exclusive with: Students who have completed more than one of the following three courses: Copyright Law; Patent Law; Trademark Law
