INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AT A CROSSROADS:

THE USE OF THE PAST IN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY JURISPRUDENCE

 

38 Loy. L.A. L. Rev. 1443 (2004)

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Intellectual property is at a crossroads today. From the rapid privatization and commodification of information to the creation of property rights in bioengineered microorganisms and lifeforms, recent developments in the intellectual property field have sparked major controversies, calling into questions our values, worldviews, and the way society protects and incentivizes human creations and innovations. To grapple with these difficult questions, courts and commentators have turned to history for guidance and support. Titled "Intellectual Property at a Crossroads: The Use of the Past in Intellectual Property Jurisprudence," this written symposium brings together six intellectual property law scholars to explore the use of history in intellectual property laws and jurisprudence.
