IP Issues in the Digital Age
Intellectual Property laws were developed to protect traditional literary, artistic, dramatic and musical works. This course introduces students to the legal principles underlying IP and explores how digital technology and the Internet have changed the rules, upsetting the traditional balance between content creators and content users and undermining many of the business models of the past. Current issues faced by policy-makers related to content use and the exploitation of IP rights will be investigated in the context of their repercussions for creators and creative enterprises.
