Intellectual Property

Due to recent scientific and technological advances, lawyering in the digital age has become increasingly important and complex.
Students interested in intellectual property may study the principal forms of protection: copyright, trademark, and patent law.

Moritz also offers multiple advanced intellectual property courses focused on issues related to the Internet and technology and protecting both
copyright and ownership of material as well as privacy.

I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society is a research and commentary journal focusing on the intersection of policy, information technology, and the law. The journal is a partnership between two leading institutions in their fields, The Ohio State
University Moritz College of Law and Carnegie Mellon University’s H.J. Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management. The I/S Journal,
along with the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies, promotes several workshops throughout the year. In recent years, the I/S
Journal’s symposia have focused on youth and social media, mash-up/remixes, the future of online journalism, cyberattacks, privacy and
new media.

Professor Peter Shane, a faculty editor of the I/S Journal, received a National Science Foundation grant for interdisciplinary study related to
cyberspace and democracy. He also was executive director of the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in
a Democracy.

The Intellectual Property Law Society exists for students with an interest in intellectual property or technology-related law. The organization strives to inform its members about the practice of IP law and current issues in the area by sponsoring speakers and enhancing relations with the local intellectual property law community.
