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, metaverse, cloud computing and open source licensing. We will 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 highly recommended, such as "Intellectual Property Law" or "Intro to IP Law." We will not review basic intellectual property or technology law in this course. An engineering or programming background is not necessary.
This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup class because of unforeseen circumstances this course has two automatic make-up classes scheduled for the 8th and 9th week. Students must be able to attend all 9 scheduled meetings to earn credit.
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.
