This course will examine both the theory and practice of patent law and, to a limited extent, the law of trade secrets. It will explore the structure of this form of intellectual property protection, the relationship between information disclosure and legal protection, and the interests of patentees, competitors and investors. We will focus not only on the principal rules that make up patent law, but also on the policies underlying these rules.
