IPIL’s National Conference, traditionally held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has through the years provided scholars a unique setting to develop, debate and deploy commentary and policy proposals concerning intellectual property and information law. Topics for past conferences have included Patents, Copyright, Trademark & Trade Secret, Information & eCommerce, and Cyberlaw.

The Summer 2014 Conference will focus on "ReCalibrating Copyright: Continuity, Contemporary Culture, and Changeā€ by exploring copyright's past, present and future, with emphasis on the relationship between this body of law and the context of modern culture, as well as changes that may, or should, result from that interaction.

Following the event’s tradition of eminent scholars, IPIL is proud to have engaged a distinguished group of speakers who will present and, with conference fellows and other attendees, discuss papers to appear shortly in Houston Law Review's annual IPIL symposium issue.

Registration is necessary for attendance (please use the links above and to the right to contact our Program Manager), but there is no charge to attend this event, which is open to members of the legal academy. The IPIL faculty at the University of Houston Law Center hopes that your summer plans can include joining us in the Great Southwest!

This year’s National Conference is made possible by continuing support from IPIL’s Advisory Council, other Sponsors and Supporters, plus generous targeted funding from Data Foundry Colocation, Giganews Usenet, Golden Frog Internet Technology, and the Yokubaitis Family.
