LAW 601 Intellectual Property Law

This course addresses the salient elements of statutory intellectual property as well as trade secrets / confidential information. The Course delves both into the details of “traditional” intellectual property, its justification, its abuses as well as the exotic emerging versions, such as rights of personality / celebrity, geographical indicators, traditional knowledge, farmer’s rights and sound and smell trade-marks. The foundation of the course starts with an examination of the relevant international treaties, both the venerable and recent. The pivot of the course is the use and exploitation of IP in a business setting which will engage anti-competition issues. Lect: 3 hrs. Prerequisite: LAW 122 Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
