Advanced Copyright Law

Course Number: 533X

Description: This course looks at advanced copyright issues from the perspective of the management of legal risks in a variety of industries that either hold and rely on rights in copyright works, or which have regular exposure to copyright liability. Thus, rather than simply looking at litigation outcomes, the course will look at copyright disputes and consider what the parties might have done, substantively or procedurally (from a copyright perspective, not a litigation perspective), to achieve a different or more certain outcomes. This class will thus assume basic knowledge of copyright law.
