École de droit, Master Droit économique
Teachers : Séverine DUSOLLIER (Professeur des Universités à Sciences Po), Michel VIVANT (Professeur des Universités à Sciences Po). Pedagogical format : Seminar Course Description : This e-learning course, provided on-line in collaboration with the Institute for Technology and Society (ITS) in Rio de Janeiro, will be taught to students from Sciences Po School of Law and from Rio State University. From copyright and trademark issues speciﬁc to the Internet to privacy protection, open licensing and innovation, liability of intermediaries, it aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the legal questions arising from the Internet development. The global dimension of legal issues and solutions will particularly be addressed and discussed, and the collaboration between students from Paris and Rio will be encouraged to fuel such global approach. The course consists in 8 sessions of two hours, given in common by a professor in Brazil and a professor in Paris, and will devote a large part to discussion with and amongst students to take full beneﬁt of the online education process. Required reading : to be deﬁned.
Second Part : case-based learning. Course Description : The course aims at analysing some issues of intellectual property in a global environment, either resulting from an increasingly international dimension of the circulation of protected works, inventions or signs, or from the development of communication networks. Globalisation induces the blurring of borders and a greater interdependence of legal issues and solutions. A common topic throughout the course will be the notion of territoriality in intellectual property and how it resists to the globalisation of the ﬁeld. The topics to be addressed could be : the international treaties and lawmaking in IP, the European IP law-making, International and European IP enforcement, Exhaustion of IP, Transfer of technology, IP and European competition law, Human rights and IP, International private law, pan-European licensing of copyright for online exploitations, new forms of digital exploitation of works, piracy and enforcement of copyright on the Internet, global issues of copyright exceptions, cybersquatting, SEP and patent wars in IT, open licensing and innovation. After a few sessions presenting the overall global regulatory Framework of IP, students will be required to prepare a case study (a few students per session preparing one different case study) on identiﬁed topics (for instance, getting copyright clearance before launching a EU offer of copyrighted content, intervention of customs as to counterfeited products). Required reading : A list of readings will be distributed to the students at the beginning of the course, with 2-3 documents per session..
