Course Description: Intellectual property law consists in the rules determining when, and subject to what conditions, the activity of producing information (broadly conceived) can generate rights to exclude others from access to information. Unlike the physical objects associated with real property rights intangibles are non-rival and non-excludable. While it often takes creativity, effort, and investment to produce them, intangibles may be easily copied. To restrict this copying and thereby encourage the production of information, the law intervenes by establishing intellectual property rights around certain valuable intangibles – creative works like books, paintings, and songs; inventions ranging from vaccines to the bag-less vacuum cleaner; and valuable brands like Coke or Google. The course adopts a thematic approach to develop the skills required to engage with the mechanics of each branch of intellectual property law (copyright, patents, and trademarks). To that end, the course is structured around a strong theme that runs persistently through all parts of IP law.
