Innovation Rights

On October 2nd and 3rd, 2014, Michigan State Law Review held a fascinating symposium entitled "Public Domain(s): Law, Generating Knowledge in the Information Economy".  I was delighted to be invited to speak as part of the "Beyond Intellectual Property" panel, along with Profs. Sean Pager and Jorge Contreras.  Based on an article Eric von Hippel and I have coauthored, the title of my talk is "Innovation Rights" (or, alternatively, "Innovation Wetlands").  Here is a video of our panel;  I begin speaking at 44:44.

One of the highlights of the event was a dinner reception held at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, whose striking architecture is soon likely to be featured in Batman v. Superman:  Dawn of Justice.  Thank you very much to the Law Review staff and College of Law faculty for holding such an enjoyable event.
