Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

The aim of the course is to provide the student with a fundamental understanding of the critical role intellectual property rights (patents, copyrights, brands etc.) play in the commercialization of technological advances. The course puts particular emphasis on how companies use these strategically important assets in achieving competitiveness.

Content

The course is divided into three sections.

The first section gives a general overview of intellectual property rights (IPR), the rights to employee inventions and handling of IPR conflicts. The section puts an emphasis on explaining how a management oriented view differs from that of a judge, lawyer or patent agent.

The second section deals with strategies for choosing IPR protection and with IPR relationships with competitors and partners. Areas included are strategies for patent filing, copyright protection in IT and protection of brands and designs. The section also deals with the usage of patent documentation for monitoring of technological, competititive and market development.

The third section focuses on commercialization of intellectual property rights. Issues such as valuation, licensing and company formation are treated. Through guest lectures perspectives from both large corporations and start-ups are included

Organisation

The course consists of a number of lectures where legal methods and rules are taught and a number of exercises where practical problems are analyzed in groups. The practical perspective is dominating in the course. Each student has to make her own strategic considerations, and at the exercises these considerations are discussed. The exercises are based on the fact that the students are well prepared.

Literature
