BSLW 6603 Cyberlaw for Business (Spring: 3 )
Law for the Entrepreneur is an experiential business law course designed to prepare students for the fundamental legal challenges of start ups, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. We examine legal issues from the idea stage, through formation of a business, to the operational stage, and through the exit phase. We will use analysis of cases, laws, and agreements as well as practical work to understand the issues that managers must confront. Legal issues covered include: invention ownership, financing, formation, trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets, contracts, licensing, employment, social media, data privacy and security. We will analyze the legal implications of agreements such as: invention assignment, contribution, stock options, employment and work visas, as well as non-compete, non-disclosure and non-solicitation agreements.
