Instructor(s): Sylvester

Course Description:
This course will survey the laws conventionally grouped as “intellectual property,” with a focus on patents, copyrights, and trademarks. The policy rationales for each body of law will be explored. The course will be particularly relevant for two types of students: (i) those who are unsure they want to specialize in IP and want a general introduction, and (ii) those who do not have room in the schedules to take all of the upper-level offerings here at ASU.

The course is not appropriate for students that have already taken the upper level courses in Copyright, Trademark, and Patents and students who have taken these offerings may be withdrawn.
