Professor William W. Fisher
4 classroom credits LAW-33800A
This course will explore copyright law in depth. Approximately two thirds of
the class time and readings will be devoted to the American copyright system;
the remainder will be devoted to the major relevant multilateral treaties and
to the laws pertaining to copyright and "neighboring rights" in other
countries. Substantial attention will be paid to the efforts by philosophers
and economists to justify, reform, or abolish the copyright system. Students
will be expected to participate in an online discussion of the issues raised by
the course. Materials will consist of a set of cases and secondary materials
available through the course home page.
