This seminar will investigate a variety of legal and policy issues underlying the development of intellectual property law (patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and related areas). The investigation will focus on issues that may affect all areas of IP, such as, regulating non-practicing entities ("trolls"), protecting three-dimensional objects, or specific areas (depending on student interest), such as: excluding protection of abstract ideas/natural laws in patent law; the scope of "fair use" in copyright law in the digital age; the availability of trademark protection against off-shore counterfeiters, or the newly-passed federal trade secrets act. These, of course, are only examples of the myriad of issues raised in our global and rapidly changing economy. Prereq: One IP course or Prior Work.

Patent systems and patent laws exist to promote investment in and development of technology. The recently-enacted America Invents Act (AIA) and certain U.S. Supreme Court decisions over the last 5 years have brought the most dramatic changes to U.S. patent law in more than 50 years. This course focuses on the fundamentals of U.S. patent law including patentability, infringement, inventorship, and ownership. The course will also explore some of the underlying themes in patent law as well as the purpose of and justifications for a patent system. The course reading includes the patent statute (Title 35 of the United States Code) both pre-AIA and post-AIA and selected case law primarily from the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The course will generally address both the procurement and enforcement of U.S. patents. Although this course will cover the legal principles underlying patent claim drafting and patentability, this course will not focus on patent practice and procedure.
