Course Description

Communication/Media and Intellectual Property share their place at the heart of the intangible side of the economy. Forced to live side by side, Intellectual Property should not be seen as a constraint, but as a strategic tool that can be employed in favour of personal or business enterprises. The goal of this course is to provide Communication students with : an overview of the various intellectual property rights ; the key elements that can be used as part of a Communication strategy and the ways they can be employed ; practical examples that illustrate how this approach can be put to work in reality. The course will only to a lesser extent teach rules and legislation, and mainly focuses on the acquisition of a practical intelligence that can be applied in the field, inspired by both the theory and practice of the rights.
