Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description The practice of intellectual property law and lawmaking has increasingly assumed an international dimension. This course has two basic objectives. One is to equip students with the methodology necessary to engage in international intellectual property practice in both public and private international law. Accordingly, International Intellectual Property will consider topics such as territoriality, national treatment, choice of law, multilateral treaties, and regional agreements that the frame the substantive rules of intellectual property law in a transnational setting. As a second objective, this course will consider intellectual property from a comparative law dimension. In this regard, it will focus on the basic differences in the approach to IP rights in national and international systems and will examine the cultural economic differences that have led to divisions between developed and developing countries relating to intellectual property. There are no specific prerequisites for enrollment. However, some familiarity with the basic concepts of intellectual property rights will be assumed and strongly recommended.
