Intellectual Property is an umbrella term for sources of law that provide exclusive rights in information. This course surveys the main elements, defenses, and remedies of the four main branches of the field: Patent, Copyright, Trademark, and Trade Secrets. This field is increasingly important to the economy. This course is intended for students who expect this to be their *only* intellectual property course because they have a primary interest in *other* areas of law or who are unsure about their interest in intellectual property. Students already interested in the field should proceed directly to the foundational courses: Patent Law, Copyright Law, Trademark Law, or Trade Secrets.
