[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Key Elective : IP lawyers tend to represent clients whose intellectual property is a key asset of their business. They need to understand the special nature of intellectual property in a business context - - how it creates value, how it is protected and exchanged, and the role it plays in a competitive economy. Students interested in an IP practice should choose one or more courses that consider intellectual property in a business context. This course covers typical intellectual property issues addressed by a technology-based company, focusing primarily on patents.
General course Description:
This course focuses on the actual day-to-day intellectual property issues faced by a technology-based company. Each class will cover a different aspect of an intellectual property practice, covering such topics as the establishment of a patent program, trade secret management, intellectual property licensing, the intellectual property issues arising during M&A transactions and strategic alliances, patent litigation, and managing open source software. The emphasis in each class will be on case studies, guest speakers, and interactive exercises designed to simulate scenarios commonly faced by an intellectual property attorney, including the negotiation of patent cross licenses, the drafting of intellectual property representations and warranties, the generation of intellectual property disclosure and licensing policies, and the identification and prioritization of patentable inventions.
