This course serves as a gateway to Berkeley Law’s extensive law and technology curriculum by providing a general overview of intellectual property law. The course begins with an analysis of the competing policies underlying the intellectual property laws. It covers the basics of utility and design patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, and other state IP-related areas of law, as well as some of the salient controversies in intellectual property law, including: patent protection for software and biotechnology; copyright enforcement challenges posed by the Internet age; and protecting trademarks on the Internet.


Real-time attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
