Blokový volitelný předmět "Current Issues in U.S. Intellectual Property Law" - Professor Markéta Trimble
Intellectual property (“IP”) law in the United States faces many of the same challenges that IP laws in other developed countries do. Dynamic international trade, modern communications technologies, and the general internationalization of the markets affect IP law; they also shape social norms and business models that interact with IP law. This course builds on the knowledge that students have obtained in their foundational IP courses and explores current issues that characterize IP law development in the United States today. At the end of the course, students will be able to identify and describe a variety of current issues that have arisen in U.S. copyright, patent, and trademark law, and analyze practical examples in light of the current issues.
Enrollment is open to all law students who have taken “Intellectual Property I” and “Intellectual Property II” at the Charles University Faculty of Law, or who have taken an equivalent or similar course or courses at other law schools.
The instructor will provide course materials in advance in electronic format. The course and all materials will be in English.
Class participation will be 20% of the final grade. While class attendance is expected, attendance alone is not sufficient; students should also be prepared to participate actively in class discussions and react to questions posed during class.
The final exam will be 80% of the final grade and will consist of a multiple choice test. The test will include topics discussed during classes, whether or not the topics are covered in the course materials; therefore, class attendance will be important for success on the final exam.
