Intellectual Property Survey

Certificate(s): High Tech Law

Course Description:

This course surveys the basics of United States intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets. This course caters both to students who want a single-course sampler of intellectual property as well as students who intend to pursue a career in intellectual property law. A technical background is not required. Numerous IP electives require this course as a prerequisite, so we encourage students planning to explore the IP curriculum to take this course as early as possible.

Class Notes:

Attendance is mandatory.  With the permission of the professor, a student may record a class for personal use.  Required texts for the course will be listed online  as will the assignment for the first class.  Class will have a take home exam.
