- The book is very outdated, get a new one. Many other courses within the MEI program that presents newer articles on similar issues takes a standpoint against many things in the book.

- for example it has been said that we should present the assignments but yet we don"t have results no one told us when to present , no one ever told us about the law exam the information was only at the homepage» (Poor)
- I think the course could have been better structured. I really liked Tom"s part and I liked the content of Ove"s part. However, Ove"s lectures were sometimes a bit difficult to follow because he didn"t really follow his own outline.» (Adequate)
- I think it was a new management issue for me and I learned many new things through the seminars, team project and lectures.» (Excellent)
- Ove impressed with his extensive knowledge about business economics and engineering in general. However, I would prefer to choose my own group members. » (Excellent)
- I liked it» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Team working»
- Tom Ewing"s part on IP law»
- The seminars and the law part with Tom.»
- lot of guest»
- Tom Ewings great law exam. The final exam was also good.»
- Good lectures with reflection time.»
- THe IPR days with inputs from different industries was very good.»
- Ewing"s law-part with midterm. Course book. »
- the book»
- Cant say»
- I think the case really improved our understanding for the subject.»
- Damage calculations»
- seminar with guests»
- Video speech with Volvo CEO»
- Guestlectures»
- IP law part of the course, and more deep»
- The broad business perspective. »
- future of capitalism»
- The case. Guest lecturer»
- teachers, debates, assigment»
- IP law courses»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think the lecturer can teach in a easier way and he should not to think that all students have a management background to understand him immediately because some concepts are very new for some technical students and it takes time to be along with the class trend.»
- Maybe some more backdround on damage calculations on the lectures before the case work.»
- Olle need to reduce the course material and give the students a better idea on what to focus on. Power point pictures should not be presented if they are not explained in the lecture. Hearing "this you can read about in the book" over and over again was very frustrating.»
- To large exam, difficult to compleat the exam in 4 hours. That the law dugga can give bonus points to the final exam»
- The planning of the lectures. It felt like we skipped some parts or went through them to quick since we were behind schedule»
- just pass or fail exam or project»
- State more clearer how big share of the course is calculated base (it should not be more calculations).»
- the group size for the assignement should be reduced to avoid free riders.»
- Perhaps the groupwork. An idea is to make one more overarching question instead of some independent or linked questions so the labor is not so easily divided but instead forces the students to cooperate. »
- seminary not included in the course»
- the schedule!»
- Cant say»
- Maybe you could add seminars where we could discuss articles.»
- The seminars should not be at the beginning of the course The IP Law exam»
- assessment because project + IP law exam + Last examination should have to be linked. For example the first would be on 20, then 20 and 60.»
- The calculations should either be in their own course and emphazished heavily, or be left out of the lectures. "Härleda" formulas during lecture time is a waste at this level when they"re so irrelevant to any other course material. If you wish to spend lecture time on formulas, take an example and use them. »
- nothing»
- Keep IP law part and rethink the economics part of the course, which sometimes confuses students in what direction to think and what"s the connection with acual intellectual property.»
- Less time pressure during the exam. »
- more finance»
- Better supervision during the case. Sometimes it was difficult to understand if we aimed in the right direction.»
- include other literature (most of 90% of the literature has been Written by the professor) should be good to know other perspectives»

16. Additional comments

- Presence of Tom was very useful for all students. I had never seen some ones like him in my prevous courses. He was frank,well-educated,serious and skilled in his own job.»
- I don"t agree with the last years students that the course need more calculations.»
- regarding the law part, it would be funny to argue against each other in a fake trial. Each opponent would have to prepare his arguments and this kind of fun competition between students could be very effective to learn.»
- No.»

- It would be nice to have the lectures more concrete, but also more open for discussion and different opinions.» (Poor)
- Too much sidetracking into old stories, and paying too much attention to 1 questionnaire, sometimes dedicating 15 minutes to explain a scenario to answer 1 question. Invite that student to come forward in the break instead, the crowd for the course was too varied so what was new to 1 student many others had heard 5 times before, e.g. betamax/vhs case.» (Poor)
- Sometimes it can feel like the main message of the lecture is that you could read about it in the book and thereby it would not be explained in the lectures. Otherwise good teaching» (Average)
- Very good at talking from the top of his head, not restricted by slides. Using blackboard in a good way. The concepts being written on the black board feels unnecessary, most of them (all?) are anyway provided in a document on the study portal. Since not all info is in slides it is hard to read in everything if you can"t attend the lecture. Classmates notes are usually not that good either.» (Good)
- good that he writes on the board and not just talks to his powerpoint slides» (Good)
- He has a very interesting and wide perspective on the subject. But he tends to not follow his outline and jump back and forth which makes it quite difficult to follow.» (Good)

It was interesting, but i think it would have been more usefull one or two week later.» (Average)

- The case should be graded » (Poor)
- Have the case add points, or make it simpler.» (Average)
- I think it would be better to become a grad for every examination so that the final result reflect more the work done during the semester.» (Average)
- Some bonus points from the case to the exam might be a good idea.» (Good)
- Good since you learned a lot. Good that the presentation was remowed since there was more then enough of examination moments.» (Good)
- The IP law exam can be grade as well, very easy to pass.» (Good)
- But too work load!!!give points to the work group!!!» (Good)
- I passed the law exam without studying at all, so you could perhaps take away that exam.» (Good)
- I think the combination is good, but that you could earn some extra points from the case.» (Good)
- If the law part is necessary to include I fins this to be ok.» (Good)
