THE CIPP PRESENTS: ” Stepping Off the Shoulders of Giants: Nonlinear Innovation in Intellectual Property Law”
April 11, 2014 • 13h - 14h30
McGill Faculty of Law Room NCDH 202
Speaker: Prof. Michal Shur-Ofry (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Contemporary IP theory concentrates on the cumulative and incremental nature of innovation and creation: Authors and inventors as “standing on the shoulders of giants”.
This talk highlights an additional type of innovation largely overlooked in IP discourse: innovation that breaks up with convention, disputes existing paradigms, or in other words–“steps-off” the shoulders of giants. It then proceeds to examine whether intellectual property policy and doctrine, particularly patent and copyright law, can foster nonlinear innovations and facilitate stepping-off giants’ shoulders.
