MAJ09400 Intellectual Property
The rise of the information economy – the age of ideas – has created new areas of law to keep pace. Intellectual Property covers the broad canvas of such rights, including trademarks, patents, designs and copyrights, as well as issues of infringement. As a rapidly developing area of law, this specialisation offers students both a critical grounding in the foundations of intellectual property and an examination of key tensions – such as piracy, infringement and international trade agreements, and how indigenous rights are weighed against commercial interests of major pharmaceuticals.
Note: Many of the subjects in this major are taught by distance only. International students should be aware that their visa may require them to enrol in at least 75 per cent of subjects via face-to-face teaching.
