LWN099 Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual property law has become fundamentally important to our modern, connected society. This unit will provide an introduction to those areas of intellectual property law that commercial legal practitioners are likely to encounter in their everyday practice. It will also examine the current policy debates in the field of intellectual property as the law adapts to the digital age. Being able to navigate and exploit intellectual property is of fundamental importance to the knowledge economy and information society. Intellectual property law is the umbrella term that encompasses the legal rights and responsibilities of creators and users of intangible goods. This subject provides students with the ability to identify issues and apply the law in the key areas of intellectual property law, including copyright and related rights, patents, trademarks, designs and confidential information.
