This course takes an in-depth look at intellectual property rights, with a focus on key management issues and how one secures, manages, and enforces these rights. There is a major focus on the international and Internet aspects of intellectual property, but also on other areas of concern to business and technology managers, such as unique contexts in which intellectual property issues arise, events normally viewed under other areas of law but which impact intellectual property, and how to protect the firm as well as its intellectual property rights. The student will examine the current state of the law in these areas as well as gain insight into the possible future direction of the law, helping the student become better prepared for today's and tomorrow's work and business environment.
