The Journal of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law (JIPEL) will focus their annual Spring Symposium on IDSov. The event will be held in collaboration with ENRICH, a coordinating hub for equity concerning Indigenous research and innovation, co-directed by Jane Anderson (NYU) and Māui Hudson (University of Waikato), and the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy (NYU Law).

The symposium will be organized around four panels: IDSov and Tribal Codes (Panel I), Government Agencies and IDSov (Panel II), Fair Use and IDSov (Panel III), and Labels as a Technical Protection Mechanism (Panel IV). The symposium will be hosted entirely over Zoom between two sessions (Panels I-II; March 1, 2023, Panel III-IV; March 2, 2023, Eastern Standard Time) so as to accommodate speakers from across the globe. The symposium will bring together scholars from several fields and perspectives, including Indigenous community leaders, as well as experts in law, public policy, medicine, global health, human genomics, anthropology, sociology, management and marketing. Following each of the four themed sessions, a roundtable discussion with invited speakers will be moderated by a member of the NYU law faculty.
