Course Description

Over the last several decades, intellectual property has become a vital element of our economies, acting as a strategic legal tool for innovative and creative industries and their multiple economic actors. This course aims at offering students a survey of the different legal mechanisms for protecting intellectual property. It introduces the major branches of intellectual property law (copyright, trademark, patent, industrial design and geographic indicators) and delves into their practical applications along with the current issues they raise in our globalized world. Considering a transatlantic comparative approach, this 12-session course will lay out the theory and provide practical case studies to question the core aspects of this ever-expanding legal system.
