Intellectual property (IP) rights such as patents, copyright, trademark, trade secrets, and "rights of publicity" are of major economic, cultural, and social significance, being central levers for shaping the information economy and internet culture. This course will explore the theoretical foundations and policy implications of these legal regimes, taking into account the leading philosophical, economic, and cultural theories developed to understand, evaluate and perhaps modify such laws. Special focus will be given to topics that are of particular economic or cultural significance or current legal controversy.
Grading will be based on class participation, 4 short response papers on a week's readings (2-pages each) and a final paper on a topic of your choice that I approve (a list of possible topics will be provided, but you will also be free to choose your own).
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.
If you are the instructor or their FSU, you may add a file like a syllabus or a first assignment to this page.
Instructor has indicated that no books will be assigned.
