Intellectual Property

This course introduces students to the constitutional, statutory and common law bases for rights in intellectual property. It provides a foundation for students who plan to take further courses in the area and an overview for students who do not plan further coursework in this area. Our primary focus will be on trademarks, copyright, and patents, but we will also touch on related topics (e.g., trade secrets, dilution, right of publicity) to provide a larger picture of intellectual property protection, its rationale, and its effects.
