Business Law - Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property (IP) Law assists in protecting the rights of individuals who have, from the creativity of their own mind, produced anything from inventions and new technology to musical or visual-based arts. These protections are based on bodies of law such as patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret laws. Situated on the Pacific Rim, Oregon Law offers IP Law with both a domestic and an international focus, examining cultural context and business practices in this period of increased globalization.
