Intellectual Property Law in Institutional Context - Prof. Michael Madison
Intellectual property law, policy, and theory should be understood not only in the context of rights and obligations affecting individual actors but also in the context of institutions that generate, preserve, and distribute innovative and creative material: markets, firms, collaboratives, and informal groups. Examples may include patent pools, open source software collaboratives, Wikipedia, research universities, and informal communities of creators or performances, such as chefs de cuisine. IP law plays different roles in different institutional contexts. The purpose of this course is to examine and compare a selection of such IP institutions.
