Learning outcomes

The software is the center of the economic and innovative fabric. The aim of the course is that students can understand the legal implications in the use of software and information systems, as well as understand the rights that arise from the creation of original software. The course therefore aims to introduce the problems that arise at the intersection between information technology and law, also in order to help students to be aware that, in the world of work, the knowledge of the existence of legal rules could determine the success of the their business. In particular, the study will start from the analysis of the protection of software in Europe between patenting and copyright. Brief notes on sw protection in common law countries. Subsequently, the articles of the law on copyright relating to the rights of economic exploitation of intellectual property will be examined (as well as the prohibitions that the code places in the exploitation of the works of others) and subsequently, the articles of the LDA expressly prepared for the protection of the SW (including all problems relating to the inventions of employees, researchers, directors of joint stock companies, shareholders' agreements). The legal rules governing some IT contracts, in particular software licenses, will then be analyzed, paying particular attention to the new legal regimes of digital content: open source and creative commons. Examples will be provided on the legal protection of apps and multimedia works between copyright and industrial law (trademarks / design / SIAE). Finally, the course will end with a brief mention of artificial intelligence software: in relation to the nature and quality of software as a product.
