Professor Heverly Invited to Munich Intellectual Property Law Center Lecture Series

East Lansing, MI — Robert Heverly, visiting professor at Michigan State University College of Law, recently presented at the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MILPLC) Lecture Series in Munich, Germany. MIPLC invites renowned scholars and practitioners to give presentations on current issues related to intellectual property law. Professor Heverly presented "Is Information?," which examined whether information is something that can be owned. His lecture explored the ownership dilemmas raised by the abstract nature of information.

Professor Heverly has published articles on the intersection of property theory and information ownership, law's role in regulating communication, and the pervasive persistence of media creations in the digital age, as well as many articles and book chapters on government and law earlier in his career.
