Intellectual Property Law-Making as Line (Re-)Drawing

Max Planck Law Teaching Session mit Daria Kim
(Registrierung erforderlich)

Die Veranstaltungssprache ist Englisch.

Policy- and law-making in the field of intellectual property (IP) is about drawing a line between excludability and non-excludability of results of creative and innovative activity. The rationales for such boundaries stem from various theories about innovation, creativity, and social well-being.  The question of where to draw a line often becomes a matter of balancing competing interests and policy objectives.


The workshop will explore the challenges of this exercise in the context of EU IP law. It will stimulate the participants to view IP law and policy as a ‘work in progress’ rather than being ‘cast in stone’ and consider how the IP framework could be improved.  


5 November 2021 – 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • Theoretical foundations of IP law
  • Critical perspectives on IP
  • IP policy levers
  • IP law from a law-in-social-context perspective


In-person if possible or hybrid format


Enrollment: Maximum 25 Participants


Please register by 17.00 CEST on 29 October 2021.
