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 artificial intelligence, 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 protection law topics.
The course is interactive, focused on practical problem-solving, exercises and quizzes.
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.
