Communication, Copyright and Culture (3) This course discusses one of the most powerful social, cultural, economic, and political institutions of our day, intellectual property (IP). Students examine the notion that creative works and ideas can be owned, bought, and sold like tangible commodities, the impact that this concept has on the way we view the world and how it helps us achieve social goals, as well as how it presents obstacles to reaching those goals. Also, in the age of digitized information and networked communication, how we can understand the role of IP in light of the rapidly-changing developments in the way culture is produced and consumed. Meets with COMM-496 001.
