Every day, thousands of teachers in the U.S. violate (unknowingly) U.S. copyright laws -- as do millions of Internet users (accidentally -- or on purpose). But are users at fault -- or is the law itself defective? Intellectual property rights have important international consequences. Approximately 5% the U.S. GDP involves copyright protected products (film, software distribution, etc.). But many argue that existing law creates unneccessary barriers to access to information for developing countries. In this course, you will not only learn the foundations of intellectual property law and how to apply it to education and business, but also why so many find these laws so problematic.
