This class will provide a broad survey of the various federal and state means to provide legal protection for intellectual creations. The course will cover the basics in the three main fields providing federal protection in this area: copyright law (which protects creative and artistic expression); patent law (which protects innovative technologies and processes); and trademark law (which protects commercial names, symbols, and images). Related state doctrines that will be briefly discussed include the law of trade secrets, unfair competition, and the right of publicity.
The Internet changes everything. Or does it? Courts, legislatures, and regulators have all had to face this question in dealing with cyberspace. Determining how existing legal concepts should apply, if at all, to cyberspace is a problem that recurs in numerous areas of law. This course will explore this problem in several different areas, such as personal jurisdiction, torts, criminal law, the First Amendment, e-commerce, antitrust, and intellectual property. There are no formal prerequisites, and no technical background is required.
This is a basic first-year introductory course to legal writing.
