This course surveys the three pillars (copyrights, trademarks, and patents) and the twin spokes (the law of ideas and trade secrets) of intellectual property. We begin by studying law of ideas cases that have succeeded and failed. We will also cover copyright law, which controls the right to make copies of works; trademarks, which are essential for students interested in pursuing a business career because of the value associated with the symbol that identifies the products or company to the world; and trade secrets and patents, which protect vital technological and scientific information. The course will include guest speakers. Additionally, students can earn extra-credit points by participating, beyond the minimum requirement, in production work for the Channel 27 television show Arts Talk, which will tape at least four episodes during the semester.
