Date: March 15-16, 2007
Technological change, globalization, and politics are each contributing to growing pressure for far-reaching changes to the U.S. patent system. On March 15 and 16, 2007, the DePaul Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology will hold a major conference on "Patents and Progress: Reflections in the Midst of Change" where leading academics will present their views on evolution and revolution in patent law.
The Symposium will be hosted by the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology (CIPLIT) of DePaul University College of Law.
The 10th Annual Niro Distinguished Intellectual Property Lecture and Luncheon on March 15, sponsored by Niro, Scavone, Haller & Niro, will be held in conjunction with the Symposium. This year the lecture will be given by Peter Drahos, Professor & Director of the Centre for Governance of Knowledge and Development, and Head of Program of the Regulatory Institutions Network, Australian National University.
