This course explores the laws and industry practices relating to the development, protection and commercialization of software, computers and information technology services. 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 the law of the Cloud, Open Source Licensing 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.
