Course Description:

This course will provide an introduction to key aspects of the international patent system and to concerns animating a variety of controversies regarding patents in areas such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and software. The value of patents is increasing in many areas while at the same time the scope of patent-eligible subject matter is expanding. We will explore the impact of these forces in the creation of international agreements concerning patents, such as the Paris Convention, Patent Cooperation Treaty, Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property, the Convention on Biological Diversity and various bilateral agreements. Against the backdrop of the U.S patent system, we also will consider facets of other national and regional patent systems and the efforts and challenges associated with patent law harmonization efforts on a variety of fronts.
