Technology Law and IP for Non-Lawyers is an innovative and practical course intended to provide students with key legal and ethical principles that technology professionals, engineers, and high-tech entrepreneurs need to know as they carry out their professional responsibilities. A distinctive feature of this course is that it presents issues from the bottom up, the way a practicing technologist would experience them, using real, current, and cutting-edge examples. Major topics will include the impact of potential liability of product design, protection and enforcement of intellectual property data privacy, technology licensing, and the proper bounds of employment relationships with respect to intellectual property. The course will also focus on in-depth classroom discussion exploring decision-making in the face of multiple and ambiguous sources of legal and normative obligations.
