From patent monetization entities and IP-driven corporate transactions, to the world of Blockchain and global data issues, through how to approach the uncomfortable clash between AI and IP, organizations and their lawyers are increasingly called upon to examine an ever changing business landscape and help craft IP strategy that aligns with a set of business, policy and even cultural goals. This course will explore how one identifies, approaches and meets those goals.

This class will examine not only how to create a strategy around IP, but also how IP is perceived, misperceived, used, misused, understood and misunderstood. It will look at how the best-laid plans to monetize IP have succeeded and failed, and occasionally, how some just got lucky. We will look at the business of IP in litigation, transactional, and policy contexts, covering more than a dozen separate subject areas.
