Intellectual Property Scholars Forum @ Akron Law | Akron | Ohio | United States

Akron Law hosts the Seventh Annual IP Scholars Forum Oct. 25, 2013. The Forum provides an opportunity for a small group of prominent scholars to engage in intensive, high-level discussions on cutting-edge issues of common interest. This year’s Forum will focus on Food and Intellectual Property and is expected to explore such issues as the patentability of foods, the effects of patents on hunger and human rights, the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Monsanto v. Bowman, and the conflict between IP and culinary cultures.

As usual, the only admission price is a short paper (10-15 pages, with minimal footnotes) on some Forum topic. If you attend, you should distribute your paper by e-mail about a month prior to the Forum. Papers will not be formally presented at the Forum. Instead, we will engage in free-flowing discussion based on the Forum topic and the papers submitted. For those who would like to do so, we will arrange for papers to be published in symposium format in our Akron Intellectual Property Journal.
