Open Intellectual Property as a Public Policy Issue

18 February 2019, 13:00 - 15:00

Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road

The global shift to knowledge-based economies and increasingly rapid pace of technological advancement means that the question of how society deals with intellectual property (IP) and structures institutions and communities to manage and disseminate knowledge is critically important to our future. Our choices about ownership and sharing of technology will reflect and shape our societal values, practices and culture.

In this discussion group we view open IP through the lens of public policy and how this might shape the adoption of Open IP and its impact on equitable distribution of technologies. Particular issues of interest include the role of universities in open knowledge production, the role of commons-based and collective models for trust in technology and market contexts in which policy reform could create the conditions for Open IP to flourish (and to what end).
