Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to let the students learn about the kind of innovative technical work that can be protected by IPRs and how companies with respect to IPRs make business assessments.
After completed course, the students are supposed to have capacity to solve, on their own hand, minor juridical questions within “Intellectual Property Rights”. They should also be able to follow and understand more complex juridical discussions.

Course content

The focus of the course will be on the Intellectual Property Rights. The legal issues of Patents, Trademarks, Design and Copyright will be discussed, as well as the questions on the different possibilities of protecting computer soft- and hardware. Questions related to the commercialisation of IP rights throughout license- agreements, Trade secrets and the marketing legislation will also be included in the course.

About teaching and examination language

The teaching language is presented in the Overview tab for each course. The examination language relates to the teaching language as follows: 

  • If teaching language is Swedish, the course as a whole or in large parts, is taught in Swedish. Please note that although teaching language is Swedish, parts of the course could be given in English. Examination language is Swedish. 
  • If teaching language is Swedish/English, the course as a whole will be taught in English if students without prior knowledge of the Swedish language participate. Examination language is Swedish or English (depending on teaching language). 
  • If teaching language is English, the course as a whole is taught in English. Examination language is English. 

Other

The course is conducted in a manner where both men's and women's experience and knowledge are made visible and developed. 

The planning and implementation of a course should correspond to the course syllabus. The course evaluation should therefore be conducted with the course syllabus as a starting point.
