C-IPhas an upcoming conference, “Culture & IP: Analogs to IP Around the World,” which will be held virtually via Zoom on Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28.

Cultures influence the development of Intellectual Property systems, and Intellectual Property systems influence how cultures develop. This conference will focus on that interplay through the lens of analogs to Intellectual Property in various cultures. This conference brings together scholars from around the globe to discuss how and whether Intellectual Property systems and their analogs co-exist, influence, and inform each other.

February webinar on “Patent Holdout and Small(er) Technology Firms” by Bowman Heiden and Matt Rappaport

The new working paper on “Patent Holdout and Small(er) Technology Firms” is now available on SSRN. Please join Matt Rappaport and Bowman Heiden when they present their finding next week at the 4iP Council webinar on Feb 16th at 16.00 CET.

This study investigates the symmetrical theory of patent holdout whereby strong patents asserted in a regime of weak injunctive relief can only extract value below their true worth. The focus of the study is on small(er) technology firms (STFs), which are generally understood as critical to economic growth.

Please register for the webinar here.
