What is Intellectual Property?

The Intellectual Property class is a survey course of the principal types of intellectual property— trade secrets, patents, copyrights, and trademarks—as set forth in federal and state statutes and further defined by case law. The course also covers two legal concepts related to intellectual property, namely the right of publicity and the law of domain names.
