Course Continuity
Students are encouraged to stay home if you are ill or experience flu-like symptoms. If you miss a class for any reason, it is still your responsibility to make up the work missed.

I offer the following to students who miss class due to illness:

- I will make PowerPoint slides or other class materials routinely available on the course site to everyone in the class.

- Please email me if you are ill or have to miss a class for unavoidable reasons. I will then arrange for the class you plan to miss to be recorded for your subsequent viewing.

We will also discuss the quantification of the economic value of different types of intellectual property laws. Lastly, we will engage in a discussion as to whether intellectual property laws can be effective tools for social engineering and the moral and societal impact/ramification of intellectual property laws.
