Description

In the Information Age, intellectual property (IP) law has taken on even greater significance. IP law is designed to encourage the production of certain forms of information by granting property rights to the producers, enabling them to appropriate the value of the information they produce. In this course, we survey state intellectual property law (e.g., unfair competition and trade secrets) as well as federal intellectual property law including trademark, patent and copyright. We examine some of the ramifications of recent technological developments on intellectual property law and some of the problems of international protection of intellectual property.
