The class runs from 1/28/2013 – 4/22/2013.
From The Berkman Center:
As part of the edX slate of courses for Spring 2013, Harvard Law School Professor and Berkman Center for Internet & Society Faculty Director William Fisher III will be teaching Copyright, a version of his traditional Copyright course at Harvard Law School. Copyright will explore the law of copyright and the ongoing debates concerning how that law might be reformed. It will also be offered as an experimental course, taking advantage of different combinations and uses of teaching materials, educational technologies, and the edX platform.
500 learners will be selected through an open application process, and supported by Harvard Law School Teaching Fellows in small sections.
The limit on the enrollment does not mean, however, that there will not be access to the course materials. On the contrary, all of the readings and recorded lectures used in the course will be made available to the public on Prof. Fisher’s personal site, http://tfisher.org.
HLS1x Copyright, an experimental course offered on edX, will explore in depth the law, theory, and practice of copyright. Approximately two thirds of the course will focus on the copyright system of the United States; the remainder will be devoted to the laws pertaining to copyright and “neighboring rights” in other countries.
At the conclusion of the course, each participant will take a three-hour exam, designed to assess his or her knowledge of copyright law and policy. Those exams will be graded by the teaching fellows. Participants who receive passing grades will be awarded certificates of completion and will be provided written assessments of their degree of proficiency.
HLS1x Copyright is an experimental course, with four different variants that allow Prof. Fisher and his team to experiment with different combinations of teaching materials and educational technologies.
Applications are being excepted through January 3, 2012.
