Much of copyright law as enacted in countries around the world is based on the provisions of multinational agreements and other international initiatives. One of the major objectives of this course will be to understand the domestic law of copyright in the international context. One focus of the course will be the details of treaties and agreements, such as the Berne Convention and other treaties overseen by the World Intellectual Property Organization. The course will examine the complicated relationship between national priorities and the objectives of major international players, such as the World Trade Organization. Also included will be some examination of international litigation issues, and the growth of legal protections closely related to copyright, such as database rights and protection of folklore and traditional knowledge.
