Publishing Law (JD-267)
The objective of this course is to offer an overview of legal issues as they arise in the publishing environment. The course will examine a range of issues that occur in publishing, including certain aspects of contract and copyright law, but also including trademark law, right of publicity law, Internet law, and First Amendment law. The topics addressed will be approached from two perspectives; one "defensive," to avoid litigation, and another "offensive," to build value in the intellectual property that is created by the author and the publisher.
