IP Strategy

Intellectual Property Strategy

The course examines intellectual property strategies for startup ventures, including building barriers to entry for competitors and reducing the risk of infringement issues. Topics will include an overview of patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret law as they relate to all stages of entrepreneurial ventures--from the invention stage, to entity formation and financing, through exit. The course will also address intellectual property procurement (e.g., patent prosecution), technology transfer, due diligence, as well as preparing for and avoiding litigation. This course does not require students to have a technical background, although students should have an interest in launching or representing ventures based on technical innovation.
