Skills you will gain
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will go from gaining a deeper comprehension of intellectual property rights, to understanding how trademark, patent, and copyright laws can protect the innovation in products, designs, manufacturing processes, of business systems or models. Specifically, you will learn how judges use trademark violations tests to evaluate infringement, how big companies use strategy in brand acquisition to eliminate competition, and the process of getting a patent in terms of the time, cost and effort required for each step of the patenting process. Finally, material will be cemented through final exams to test your knowledge.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
