Based on a case study focused on generative artificial intelligence (AI), 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 intellectual property law, but we will also cover contracts, antitrust,international and commercial issues, as well as different technology and business models, including artificial intelligence, 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. Optionally, it will offer discussion and research opportunities concerning AI development and safety.

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.

Prior courses in intellectual property topics are HIGHLY recommended, such as "Intellectual Property Law" or "Intro to IP Law."
