LAW 0553: Copyrights
Fall 2018 • Section 21 • CRN 9180

Course Description

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the basics of US copyright law. Without detracting from this goal of covering the (domestic) copyright basics, we will also look at these issues in the specific context of these new technologies and the growing internationalization of copyright law, in order to introduce you to some of the problems that are likely to arise as copyright law enters the next century. Topics to be covered include the subject matter of copyrights, copyright ownership, the scope of copyright protection, the nature of the copyright infringement inquiry, the "fair use" and other defenses, and selected issues concerning the international enforcement of copyrights.
