Law 278.31 Technology and Intellectual Property in Law

Interested in the type of law practiced by Devil's Advocate? Thanks to the advent of webcasting, you can take an entired undergrad semester course on IP law courtesy of UC Berkley. Yes, it's Berkley, but it's tough to inject too much wanton anti-Americanism into a basic IP law class. Or at least I think that's the case. Take a look at the course syllabus/podcast list. I just watched the class on derivative works, and found it a fascinating refresher of my law school IP survey course. The class list shows a heavy emphasis on copyright law, which is understandable given that it is the most practical area of IP for college students and other individuals not in business.

(There's also a slew of non-law courses available this semester, mostly in the engineering and scientific disciplines. One or two history classes, too, which merit some healthy skepticism given their origin. Class titles include Ideologies of class, gender and history: socialism, liberalism, conservatism, feminism, historicism, romanticism.)
