Intellectual property offices consider two important aspects for the purpose of registration—subject-matter and the criteria for protection under the law. The course brings practical insight into what can and cannot be protected as trademarks and copyrights. The course also offers you an in-depth understanding of each stage of trademark and copyright registration. It will include the following:
- Subject-matter for protection of trademarks.
- Author v. ownership in copyrights.
- Criteria for protection of each trademark and copyright
- Where and how do applications usually fail at the IP office?
- What should IP attorneys and lawyers consider while they advise their clients before considering the registration of trademarks and copyrights?
At the end of this course, you should be able to infer whether a subject-matter is eligible for IP protection and what are the preliminary criteria you should meet before filing a trademark or copyright application. You will be given different topics like, trade names, logos, designs, literary or artistic works, etc., to analyse whether the subject-matter is protectable. This would enable you to comprehend better what Intellectual Property offices consider while granting or refusing registration.
I believe in copyright, within limited precincts. But I also believe in fair use, public domain, and especially transformation.David Shields
