LIP 939 (1ON) - Intellectual Property Policy

IP Policy

Credits: 2.0
Term: Summer 2020 - Special Summer Session (05/18/2020 - 08/30/2020)

The practice of law goes beyond interpreting what judges, Congress and administrators mean when they issue decisions or enact rules and laws. Influencing what bills get taken up by Committees, are voted on by Congress, and what those bills actually say is an important part of daily practice life for many attorneys. So too is influencing regulators views, influencing the judicial branch through amicus filings, and even the lobbying the Solicitor General. This happens behind the scenes but plays a vital role in implementation of law and policy. This course will explore this intersection of law and policy.

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.
