Sometimes A Cigar Is Just A Trademark

On September 9th and 10th, 2016, I participated in "The Psychology and Sociology of Creativity and IP" at Stanford Law School.  Rebecca Tushnet, author of the superb 43(B)log, summarized each of the sessions:
Session 1: Why do people create? 
Session 2: Why do companies patent? 
Session 3: What can we learn from IP-free zones?
Session 4: The sociology and psychology of brands 
Session 5:  Fairness, efficiency, and distributive justice
Thank you very much to Mark Lemley for organizing and hosting this fascinating meeting.
