This course will introduce students to fundamental principles of U.S. copyright law. The legal protection of "creative" content as an intangible property right has been statutorily recognized in the U.S. for over 200 years. While legal rights in such works are often seen as rooted in economic rationale, the law has changed over time, in response to technological challenges and international developments. The course will therefore also provide students with an understanding of how U.S. copyright law functions and adapts in this changing environment. Students with an interest in any branch of modern intellectual property law and how it responds to modern challenges will benefit from this course. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: final exam, 100%.

Credits: 3.0

Class Size:   15  
CRN: 71040
The goal of this course is to review trademark and other state and federal law designed to protect commercial goodwill; to explore the tension between trademark and related rights as intangible commercial property, on the one hand, and as devices to further competition and to prevent consumer deception, on the other; to explore trademark-related issues raised by commerce and speech on the Internet; to evaluate the rights of authors, artists, and other celebrities to trademark-like protection of their personae; and to analyze advertising claims against the backdrop of consumer perception. (The U.S. is a common law country in which trademarks are established through use and not registration. This course does not address the process for federal trademark registration; rather, it approaches trademark law from the standpoint of establishing trademark validity and enforcing valid trademarks through litigation or other dispute resolution mechanisms.) Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: final exam, 70%; midterm exam, 30%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.
