Posted here is the instruction portion and assignment portion of the final examination. The actual question portion is 6 pages, double spaced.

I strongly recommend that students read this document before the exam. It is formatted differently than the example exam instruction examples given below, but its essence is equivalent.

Besides the course casebook, students should also bring the following to the examination in printed form: (i) the TRIPS treaty; (ii) the Paris Convention; (iii) the Berne Convention; and (iv) the course overheads.

Exam Time and Place

The exam is Thursday, December 6, 2007, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. (3 hours).

The exam room for those handwriting the exam is 215 TUII.

The exam room for those typing their exam by computer is the same, 215 TUII .

Everyone must be in 215 TUII by 1:45 p.m. for examination distribution.

My standardized exam instructions and documents about how I evaluate exams

Here is a prototype of the exam instructions I anticipate using on the final examination. I contemplate that the ultimate exam instructions will be substantially similar to these instructions, however, I reserve the right to change these exam instructions in any way.

Here is a document about how to write answers for my exams and some information about how I evaluate these answers. There may be revisions to this document during the Fall 2007 "exam season."

"Old" exam materials from my prior Int'l IP classes

The items available are the Int'l IP examination from Spring 2003, and Fall 2003 through Fall 2005, and a composite student model answer for the Fall examinations (posted without any individually identifiable information) from students that earned a high grade for each class.

Please note that I generally calibrate the length of my exams with the number of course hours. For a three hour class, the examination will be up to, but no more than, 6 pages, double spaced.
