Students will be introduced to various aspects of common law as applied in the United States—including the U.S. Constitution, property law, contract law, the law of torts and criminal law. The purpose of the course is to give students an overview of the most important features of American law and to help them establish points of comparison with their own legal systems. The class is well suited for students who are considering LL.M. studies in the United States. However, such an interest is not required.

 

Students who wish to receive credit ("Studienpunkte") for BZQ II will write an exam on Thursday, May 24, 2012, from 10am-12pm in room UL 9, 210.

 

Required Text:

This is a general course in U.S. copyright law. Among other things, we will cover the subject matter of copyright, ownership, duration and transfer,

infringement, fair use, and the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. We will briefly introduce the foundations of each of these topics and then address some of the controversial

issues that confront copyright law and policy today such as secondary liability, peer-to-peer file sharing, technological protection measures, and orphan works.

The class is open to students of "Schwerpunktbereich" 3 and 4a. International and doctoral students are welcome. Upon special request, audits may be allowed.
