This course explores laws, industry practices and policy considerations 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. We will also cover international and commercial issues, antitrust law, as well as current hot topics, such as apps, cloud, Internet of Things, open source licensing and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will also cover data as an asset, but not information privacy or data security topics.
The course is interactive, focused on practical problem-solving, exercises and quizzes. Please look at the First Assignment and Abbreviated Syllabus for this course at the bottom of this page.
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.
This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup class because of unforeseen circumstances this course has two automatic make-up class scheduled for the 8th and 9th week. Students must be able to attend all 9 scheduled meetings to earn credit.
