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 Why do we give inventors the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling the inventions that they introduce into the world? Is the patent regime performing the purpose laid out for it in the Constitution, namely to "promote the Progress of ... Useful Arts"? How are patent rights structured to speed the delivery of new medicines, computers, and mousetraps to eager consumers? With an emphasis on these questions, this class surveys United States patent law as codified in Title 35 of the United States Code and as interpreted by the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and the Patent and Trademark Office. The structure follows the basic steps of a patent infringement suit, addressing claim construction, claim validity, infringement, defenses and remedies.
