SOLM096 Trade Secrets (Teaching Period A20)

Module Description

Every intellectual property right starts life as a trade secret. Trade secrets and related intellectual assets are viewed as critical to the success of many businesses. But they are also uniquely fragile rights and so their protection under different legal systems requires close assessment.  This module complements other IP modules by providing an opportunity to study the economic and legal foundations of these important rights.
