Working Within the Boundaries of Intellectual Property
In June 1998, The Engelberg Center convened a conference at La Pietra to examine the expanding boundaries of intellectual property protection. Various proposals were made for cabining the trend. Subsequent experience has demonstrated, however, that cabining is politically unfeasible and administratively difficult. In the face of increasing concern that strong rights could hinder innovation and slow dynamic competitiveness, this conference was organized to investigate approaches to working within the expanding intellectual property paradigm.
