Trademarks and Unfair Competition (3)

This course is centered on the use of trademarks as a critical intellectual property device designed to prevent consumer confusion over the origin of products and services and the misappropriation of commercial goodwill. In addition to addressing traditional legal questions that arise from acquiring, infringing upon, and losing trademark rights under the Lanham Act and the common law, the course focuses upon special issues raised by the Internet; the free speech implications of trademarks; and the international aspects of trademark protection.
