This concentrated survey will cover the protection of fashion design and industrial design (from furniture to graphical user interface) by means of intellectual property law (namely design patent, trademark, trade dress, and copyright law). This course will focus on existing protections in U.S. law, but we will also look at legislative proposals for additional protections (mostly in fashion) and make comparisons to the protection systems in other jurisdictions. The class format will include a lecture and discussion of readings, as well as conversations with experts in the field via class visits and Skype. There are no prerequisites for this course.
