Why it is relevant for ...
[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Foundational Course : IP law today has a significant international component. Many business clients have non-U.S. customers, suppliers and distributors, and practitioners need to protect and enforce their clients’ IP rights in foreign markets.
General course Description:
Music, motion pictures, even books travel instantaneously around the globe. So do patented inventions; so do brands and trademarks. Copyright and trademark licenses increasingly take foreign exploitation into account. Litigation over an important patented invention often proceeds on several foreign fronts. No lawyer practicing intellectual property law today can afford to overlook the substantive and procedural differences that separate one country's law from another's. This course will focus on the counseling considerations that surround the exploitation of intellectual properties in domestic and foreign markets through licensing, litigation, or both. The course will survey the principal legal systems and international treaty arrangements for copyright, patent, trademark and neighboring rights, as well as questions of jurisdiction, territoriality, national treatment and choice of law.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
Course Frequency: Offered once a year
