Some Modest Proposals 4.0: A Conference About Pouring Academic Ideas into Legislative Bottles
In Modest Proposals, Cardozo Law School's Intellectual Property and Information Program invites academics known for advocating thoughtful ways to improve intellectual property, technology, and information law to present ideas from their writing in the form of actual statutory, regulatory, or treaty language. Each proposal receives both scholarly and political commentary in a free-wheeling discussion among professors, current and former Capitol Hill staff, administration officials, and Washington activists. This round, Modest Proposals 4.0 will have a set of copyright, patent, trademark, and information law proposals.
Friday, April 8, 2011
10 am – 5 pm
