  • What facilitates innovation and creativity in our digital age?
  • What role, if any, do our IP laws play in the growth of innovation and creativity in the United States?

More than 200 years after the Constitution enshrined protections for those who create and innovate, the debate over whether intellectual property laws actually work as intended continues. The discussion engages artists, scientists, businesses, and the lawyers who serve them, as well as those who enjoy the fruits of intellectual and creative endeavors.
