IP Day 2020

Intellectual Property and Technology Markets

Monday and Tuesday,
July 27-28, 2020
Hosted virtually by TPRI @ BU Law

Intellectual property rights not only provide incentives to innovate, but also support trade in markets for ideas and technology. From patent licensing to technology transfer to mergers and acquisitions, how well do these markets function in different industries and for different types of intellectual property? Are technology markets working efficiently for buyers, sellers and creators of IP? How can public policy support the division of innovative labor and balance the incentives to create and disseminate new ideas?

We had presentations of the latest research on these topics and more, including a panel discussion with licensing attorneys at leading corporations, at TPRI’s fourth annual IP Conference, July 27-28, 2020.
