Hi again

In today’s lecture I was talking about Intellectual Property Law (IP-Law). As you understand it is a very complex area of the Law. In the course we will focus on Copyright Law in the narrow definition that you find in Article 2 in Berne Convention. Remember that copyright is only a part of IP-Law. I choose to focus on this part because it is important and you will probably run into the area on a daily basis. It will also be a good illustration of how multilateral conventions interact with national law. Now it is time for you to read chapter 4 and 5 in the book IT Law for IT Professionals and of course the Berne Convention.   

I will give a Webinar on May 3, at 1 PM. In the Webinar you will learn how to find IP-Law texts on Internet. The information will help you in the work with the written seminar exam.
You will find a Link to the Webinar at the course homepage.
I will record the Webinar so if you can’t attend the Webinar you will be able to watch the movie at a later time.

Yu can now find the instructions for the Final Written Seminar (SEM1) on the homepage together with information regarding how I will grade the two exams.

Hope You enjoyed today’s lecture and that I will see you soon again 🙂

Hi again

Today’s lecture did not come out exactly the way I wanted. I spend too much time talking about the legal system in USA. I wanted to explain more in detail about the Data protection Directive but I run out of time. It is very important that you reed the Directive, you find it on the home page, at the same time as you read the IT book chapter 2 and look on the homepage of the Swedish Data Inspection Board. You will find the link on the home page. Try to understand how Sweden has implemented the different parts of the Directive in the Swedish Personal Data Act.

You will get more information about Directives and different EU Laws in next lecture.

Take good care of yourself,
Krister

Hi,
Introduction and first lecture (short one) is done. It is always very, very nervous to start a new course in English. I hope you did get all information right. I will write down all dates regarding seminars and information about what is mandatory and what is not. You will find the information on the homepage soon.

I talked a little about the history of the law and what law is and not is. It is good if u have a basic knowledge about the differences between common law and civil law. Next lecture we will talk a little bit more about different legal systems in the world and then we will continue to talk about Data protection. Print out the Directive 95/46/EC from the homepage and bring the Directive to next lecture.
Remember: “To be Right and To get Right is not always the same” 🙂

Best regards
Krister
