Intellectual Property Law Firm tour

Next week we're headed back to Bay Street. This is my third tour and I'm getting a pretty good idea of the opportunities out there. Generally, the realm of IP Law is filled with scientists and engineers so my chances of joining their ranks is slim, but it does interest me.

This year, the tour will visit Bereskin & Parr, Gowlings, and Smart & Biggar. During a lecture on IP Law, a prof told us about a room at Bereskin & Parr with all the items involved in their patent/ copyright claims. She described it as a "museum" of design and innovation.

An interesting tidbit that our prof shared with us: the sound of Harley Davidson's motorcycles is protected under copyright. Copyright sound?!
