LAW 2720 - Intellectual Property Colloquium

This colloquium aims to put students and faculty in conversation about some of the best current scholarly work in intellectual property. Subjects for Spring 2013 will include aesthetic analysis in intellectual property, the role of innovation prizes in intellectual property,  copyright law and pornography,  experimental tests to measure innovation and creativity in intellectual property, improvement doctrines in property and intellectual property law, the problem of determining the audience in intellectual property infringement, and  the  issues surrounding the patenting of nature, among other topics. 

Every other week, outside authors will present their own recent work, with students and faculty engaging them in dialogue. On the weeks respectively preceding each speaker, students will prepare to discuss authors’ scholarship, in part by writing and sharing reaction papers and formulating questions. Throughout the semester, students will also be appointed to lead the discussion about the work of specific speakers. Students will leave the course with a stronger grasp of the field of intellectual property and better prepared to engage with specialized materials in the area on their own. Prior coursework in intellectual property is not required, but students without any background will be asked to complete additional reading in preparation for the class.
