The Impact of Weaker IP Rights and IP Monetization will be Examined at Two Fall Conferences

Understanding the meaning of weaker IP rights and commercializing innovation are the focus of major intellectual property events in September and October.

The Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy (IP²) is holding its annual fall conference at George Mason University, September 22-23.

“After decades of efforts by some to slow the perceived expansion of intellectual property rights (IPR) around the globe, policymakers and courts in a number of countries have responded by placing greater limitations on IPR.”

Now that such limits have been in effect for a few years, researchers have been able to start measuring the impact on innovators, creators, and the overall economy.

The Annual Fall Conference of C-IP2, IP on the Wane: Examining the Impacts as IP Rights Are Reduced, brings together leading researchers, policymakers, creators, and innovators to share their experiences and results.

This meeting is being Co-Hosted with the Global Antitrust Institute (GAI) and the National Security Institute (NSI).
