Intellectual Property: The Law of Scientific and Cultural Production (21351). 4 units. This course will introduce students to the law governing scientific and cultural production. The course will focus on intellectual property law, but will also address other modalities that sustain such production, such as government funding and the commons. We will cover the conventional IP subjects in some detail (patent law, copyright law, and trademark), but in the context of a broader framework investigating the proper goals and tools of information policy. Students will gain a basic overview of the relevant black letter law, as well as an introduction to theoretical debates about the proper grounds of information policy, and debates about important policy issues in the contemporary realm of information policy, such as file sharing, transnational "piracy," and global access to medicines. Self-scheduled examination (web). A. Kapczynski.
