Intellectual Property 1 - The Term 'Intellectual Property'

"Intellectual Property" is a phrase that is often tossed about. What does it mean, and how do intellectual and physical property compare? In this presentation, IP lawyer Neil Wehneman unpacks the meaning behind the phrase "intellectual property."

By popular demand, I've put off doing the first-year curriculum, and am instead going straight into the IP topics. This series will be an overview, and then I'll go into detail of the specific topics.

I start this presentation off a little fast, but quickly get into a normal cadence. I might re-record this one at some point to fix those first few seconds.

There are multiple sources of law, and oftentimes those sources of law conflict. In this presentation, IP lawyer Neil Wehneman discusses the hierarchy of different laws.

In this first episode of the Rules of the Legal Game, IP lawyer Neil Wehneman discusses “The Law of the Horse.” The idea behind “The Law of the Horse” is that different areas of the law are really simply the application of generally applicable principles of foundational areas of law, such as contract or tort.


So here's the first episode. It only took me about twenty takes to get it right. (Darn the perfectionist in me.)

Comments are welcome!
