A survey of international intellectual property through the lens of the Internet, this course deals with the intersection of traditional intellectual property law and the Internet.

The survey includes emerging copyright, trademark, trade secret and criminal law issues in the U.S. and other jurisdictions (especially the European Union), and the applicability of key treaties. In the face of differing cultural and social norms, the course will also focus on domestic and international regulation of the Internet, privacy, speech and content regulation, and social media.
