PLA2413 Intellectual Property

Intellectual property, often known as IP, allows people to own their creativity and innovation in the same way that they can own physical property. The course is divided into the four areas of intellectual property law which include trademark, copyright, patent and trade secrets. For each area, the course will aim to cover the statutory bases, as well as discuss key doctrines and cases. Finally, the course will expose each student to the practical considerations faced by those working in related legal fields. The student will explain the filing process, filing systems, and the typical life cycle of a case for each area of intellectual property. Common litigation causes of action and remedies will also be discussed.
