Intellectual Property Management – ONLINE
This course will address legal standards and management techniques for acquiring and using intellectual property (IP). The focus will be on transactional methods that corporations, universities, and other organizations use to identify valuable IP. The course will also consider the additional steps that organizations should take to ensure that valuable IP qualifies for legal protections and is used to commercial advantage. Portions of the course will examine transactional techniques for originating, developing, and disseminating valuable IP in social service projects (often by distributing new IP embedded in products such as drugs needed in developing countries or equipment for ensuring clean water). The course will consider systematic methods aiding companies and other organizations in avoiding misuse of IP of others, thereby preventing large liabilities for IP infringement and potential disruption of future organizational activities due to injunctions enforcing IP rights. Students in the course will examine a series of case studies illustrating the development, use and misuse of IP, with emphasis on the management techniques that were used or that could have been used to produce better results.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. An interview (in person, online, or by phone) may be scheduled following an initial screening.
