Randall W. Whitesides, P.E.
The course is a compilation of subjects, definitions, and personal interpretations of issues dealing with intellectual property. After a generalized introduction, the scope narrows to those aspects of intellectual property that will be of particular interest to Architects, Engineers, and Surveyors. A course of this length cannot possibly cover every aspect of intellectual property in detail, but the basics will be received by the student. The course does not address the significant issues dealing with current copyright law that derives from relatively recent technological developments such as digitization and download of information via the computer/internet.
This course contains the opinions and ideas of its author. It is intended to provide helpful and informative material on the subject matter covered. It is presented with the understanding that the author is not engaged in rendering legal or, in regards to this course, other professional services. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the student is encouraged to consult appropriate counsel for advice specific to his or her individual circumstance.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end.
