Intellectual Property: Patents

In this course we cover the major aspects of patent law, primarily as applied in the United States: patentability, including novelty, nonobviousness, and enablement; infringement; and remedies. The emphasis is on essential legal principles and a policy analysis of the patent system. The course is designed to be useful both as solid background for non-patent-specialists and for those planning a career in the field. Introduction to Intellectual Property or consent of the instructor is a prerequisite for this course. No technical background is required. Elements used in grading: Class participation and final exam.
