Abstract

Academic course “International Intellectual Property Law” is devoted to advanced studies of contemporary matters of theory and practice of Law and Regulation in intellectual property sphere. Intellectual property (IP) plays a significant role in the modern economy, in particular in the digital field. Each country has its own system of intellectual property protection, which includes such basic types of intellectual property rights as utility models and patents (for inventions), trademarks, industrial designs, trade secrets, copyright and related rights. However, a feature of intangible assets is the ease of their distribution, including at the same time the distribution at the international and regional levels, where there are actively developing tools for harmonizing legislation. This process began in the XIX century with the adoption of the first international conventions in this area, and was continued with the creation of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The main goal of studying this course by students should be the formation of basic concepts of intellectual property as it is perceived in foreign legislation, as well as an understanding of the main mechanisms of international regulation and knowledge of key aspects. The students will acquire the following skills and abilities: to use specific terms and sources of the global IP Law and Regulation; practical abilities to research and analyze WIPO, WTO, EU and EEU legal documentation and scientific works; skills to analyze and solve cases, building up of the legal position and composition of procedural documents on cases in the sphere of International IP Law and Regulation students must gain knowledge on general standards of IP protection under WIPO, WTO, EU and EEU Law; enforcement of IP rights in the global prospective; drafting international commercial transactions with IP component. Students should gain the following competencies: ability to work with information (search, evaluate, use information, necessary for fulfillment of academic and professional tasks, from various sources, including application of the systematic approach); ability to carry out professional activities in the international environment. The course provides for the active participation of students in seminars and an oral exam. There are no blocking elements of control.
