Class Size:   15  
CRN: 57087
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%.

This graduate course examines select issues of intellectual property law in both an international and comparative context. The course introduces the basic contours of international principles, treaties and institutions regarding IP, including significant substantive and procedural differences between the United States and other countries (with a focus on the U.S., Europe, and Asia).

While the course assumes a general background in IP law, in-depth knowledge of IP law in the U.S. or in any other country is not required.

This course will educate students in federal TM registration, from pre-application trademark searching through post-registration maintenance and monitoring. Students will become familiar with USPTO practice and procedures, including information literacy of PTO database searching, e-filing at the PTO (one of the assignments will be to prepare an electronic trademark application) and paper filing (another assignment is to draft a paper filing response to an office action). USPTO guidelines and governing principles for handling various rejections will be addressed. The course will also cover ex parte appeals to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. By applying the students' trademark law knowledge to USPTO practices, students will be expected to develop strategies for hypothetical trademark clients to best meet trademark registration objectives in order to prepare them to counsel clients on mark development, the benefits of federal registration, cost concerns, and other trademark matters. The copyright registration portion of the course will cover statutes, rules, and practice impacting copyright registration. For example, the course will address the benefits of copyright registration (including statutory damages, presumption of validity, and other advantages), categorization of works under the Copyright regulations (for proper form selection), putting the work for hire doctrine into application in the process, the single work rule, copyright notice, handling multiple authors for different contributions to a work, determining the "publication date," and the difference between an "author" and a "claimant." The course additionally addresses the reason and process for the recordation of instruments at the USPTO and the Copyright Office. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Prerequisites: Concurrent or prior completion of Fundamentals of Intellectual Property OR Trademarks & Deceptive Practices; OR, prior trademark experience (see Prof. Lembree with questions).
