Course Description
This course will cover the most important features of U.S. patent law. We will explore patent interpretation, validity, infringement, and remedies. We will also devote attention to the basic theoretical and practical justifications for the patent system, the process by which inventors obtain patents, and current issues in patent policy. No technical background is required. Indeed, the vast majority of judges who decide patent cases, including all of the Supreme Court Justices, have absolutely no engineering or science background whatsoever.
