Literature, video games, sculpture, cartoons, movies, music, puzzles, computer software, architecture, advertisements: copyright involves them all, and the cases in this course touch on almost every aspect of modern culture. Copyright law studies the theory and mechanics of protecting investments in a variety of intellectual and creative products. Most of the law of copyright is set out in a complex federal statute, which is the main focus for the course. Some attention will also be paid to related laws that can provide alternatives to copyright protection.
