LAWS77-577: Fundamentals of Intellectual Property Law

Description

Fundamentals of Intellectual Property Law is an elective subject in postgraduate programs offered by the Faculty of Law. This subject will address intellectual property law in the context of the entertainment industries, technological and design innovation, and the protection of reputation. The module will draw on the comprehensive international IP treaty system, including WTO (TRIPS) and WIPO, to identify and analyse key issues and tests in the context of different domestic laws. The subject will also help students to develop a practical strategic focus, recognising that the protection of intellectual capital and goodwill goes beyond reliance on IP law alone.
