C-IP2 George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School is hosting the exclusive two-week WIPO-U.S. Summer School on Intellectual Property this June 5-16. The Summer School will be held virtually so that they are able to include students who would not otherwise be able to attend, and to encourage collaboration all over the globe.
The Summer School program provides an opportunity for students, young professionals, and government officials from all over the world to acquire deeper knowledge of U.S. IP, including an understanding of how IP operates as a tool for economic, social, cultural, and technological development. Program participants are exposed to various aspects of intellectual property rights, including the international nature of IP protection and the interface between IP and other disciplines.
Additionally, U.S. law students can opt take the course for academic credit!

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.
