This course explores the laws and industry practices relating to the development, protection and commercialization of software, databases and computers. The primary focus will be on two areas of law: intellectual property and contracts/licensing. We will also cover international and commercial issues, antitrust law, as well as current hot topics, such as Open Source Licensing, Software as a Service, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Prior courses in intellectual property topics are recommended but not required; there will be no or minimal overlap with other courses. No technical background is required; a hands-on introduction to information technology will be provided as part of the course.
The course will have a final exam. Students can satisfy Writing Requirement.
