Intellectual property and public interest

What is the impact of intellectual property on communities, innovation and development? That was the central theme at the Fourth Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest held in New Delhi, India earlier this month, where more than 450 delegates from around the world participated in discussions, which brought together academics, advocates and policy makers to explore issues related to intellectual property. Jorge Contreras, a professor at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, contributed to the international conference as a speaker, moderator and co-organizer of the “IP and Development” track. In addition, he is engaged in several research projects examining the acquisition and assertion of patents in the domestic Indian mobile device market. He’s available to speak about the conference and his current research.
