Medicine, Music, and Mascots: Furthering Social Justice in the Age of Intellectual Property

September 20, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm PDT

As we move further into the information age, the domain of intellectual property (IP) continues to grow exponentially. This domain––which includes algorithms, digital creations, genes, and even living organisms––is a vast economic resource that garners massive earnings for the media, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and academic industries, among others. As social-justice minded lawyers and scholars working within the realm of IP, we have the opportunity and obligation to ask how the resources of IP can be used to advance the wellbeing of our communities, nations, and the world at large. With these concerns in mind, this conference dares to put IP into conversation with social justice by asking how the areas of patent law, trademark law, and copyright law can better serve the public good in the modern world.
