- Workload very poorly distributed, material uploaded late and examination examples provided only in the last week. It is very counterproductive to postpone the teamwork to the end of the course.» (Poor)
- Bad information through out the whole course. Hard to look back on the slides from the lectures. Ove went over the time every lesson.» (Fair)
- The course is more theoritical rather than practicle, it is may be useful for the high level managmenet,since it is ture becoming more important. » (Adequate)
- i enjoyed the topic of the course very much, but the lectures could have been much better» (Adequate)
- Really good and interesting lectures!» (Good)
- One of the best courses I have taken at Chalmers during my almost five years here.» (Excellent)
- The session when Ove and Tom came together explaining about the intersection between law and economic the week before presentation( I try not too hype) is the best class ever in my education history. That is the way how a knowledge has to be merged with other.» (Excellent)
- One of the few courses that I completely enjoyed !» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- IP Law portion, there should be more assignments rather than 1, as students learn more from the assignments.»
- The lecturer, Ove granstrand»
- The IP part with Tom Ewing was very interesting and taught me a lot of new things. The whole Granstrand book was interesting, but primarily so chapters 6 and 7. It was fun to see Ove playing the piano. Keep that. It would be fun if Ove introduced new topics with a little jingle, e.g. before speaking about the exam he could play Darth Vader"s theme from Star Wars.»
- Tom»
- Tom ewings part was very good.»
- 1) IP Projcet »
- the guest lecture, the experience from thomas Ewing»
- Some technical aspect please.»
- Most of the contents of the course are very appropriate. Lectures were interesting and a good space to interact with professors. »
- tom ewing and commercial law / innovation day»
- Set the boundaries clearer. What will be done in classes and what will not. The delay in the material occurred a trouble in the end when the time should be spent on exam training.»
- more articles about the topic»
- the entire course is really interesting. In particular the first part with Thomas Ewing. The book is excellent. I really appreciate the lesson about IPRs in creative industries.»
- All lectures, book by Ove, Romer"s article»
- The form of examination (law exam and assignment pass/fail + final exam graded). »
- High degree of Professor Granstrands lectures. The course book.»
- Ove"s interesting perspectives connecting the course material with current events (financial crisis for example)»
- -The project was a good idea. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The bad information»
- I did not have a possibility to attande the seminars (compulory lectre in my other course) and even id I did ask my friends what the seminar was about I had no change of answering the question about on the exam. Please do not ask questions from a seminar we cannot attend!»
- Ratio of assignments.and their weightage should be in final exam»
- The project. It was too late in the course. Also project presentations. They should be cut after 6 minutes if 5 minutes is a limit. Also the way to put a few students under pressure with questions. It should be the same to all in that case. »
- slides can be refined.»
- 1. Perhaps a bit more of the down-to-earth information provided in the Granstrand Excerpt could be included. I am thinking about the parts called "Market Analysis", "Commercializing Innovations" and "Technology Investment". 2. Perhaps I didn"t listen well enough, but I thought China was remarkably absent from the course material (I am Swedish). If China is one of the oldest civilizations on earth, surely there must have been some early signs of IPRs developing there as well? I am no expert, there are professors in Chinese history, but take e.g. the trade secrets of silk production and/or porcelain. I think this would make Chinese exchange students feel like we actually do know something about China. 3. The case could have been handed out earlier (or we could have been notified about it earlier).»
- the project should be graded, or be not as time-consuming»
- 2) Some literature, »
- I would recommend slides with key concepts, at the moment where the teacher summerizes the course. It will enable to catch the most important and take notes on parts we miss during the course.»
- better organization organized group work, of the slides on the course portal and prepared lectures»
- hard to say. I give exactly 10 for all Ove class except for Music one, its 9.5. Yet, it impressed me that a genius people should also has sense of art as Ove did.»
- The group work should be started earlier»
- info and planning e.g. project»
- Start the group-work earlier. right after the law exam. Give students feedback about their work and expected workload. »
- I think that group assignment is not useful. »
- Technical articles were useless. Find some more case articles ? Give bonus points on the Law exam and the Case !!»
- Maybe the course material and the timing for the assignment. Leave out basic IPRs and focus on a more advanced level.»
- 1.) Earlier formation of report groups (so that the work can get started). 2.) Calculation exercises.»
- -The hand out of the project was not clear enough, last question. SF LF -An excerpt of what is compulsory to know and learn. Definitions, concepts, characteristics... -In the economic part in orther to calculate damage calculations, although we calculate and obtained some theory it was poor. An extensive document could have been a good idea in order to read it by our own. If something that was not on the book was needed. »

16. Additional comments

- I really want some evidence cases about calculation (optimum level of length time, optimum R&D expense). Indeed, markus could assist for additional tutorial for exercises. »
- This course encourage me to read more about Intelectual Property. It was a great subject and lots of new things to learn!»
