ENT 305 - Intellectual Property in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

This course will explore how intellectual property law manifests itself in entrepreneurship and influences innovation.  Students will come to appreciate how decisions about patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets can advance strategic business goals.  To gain this understanding, we will survey key statutes, cases, and sources to understand key intellectual property regimes.  This course will be heavily participatory.  Early in the course, students will select a target publicly traded company in a sector of interest, which will provide concrete examples for the class to collaboratively analyze.  Each student will create and present an IP due diligence report that evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of their target company’s IP portfolio as well as provide recommendations for the future.
