Conference on Innovation and Communications Law

Calonia, Vänrikinkatu 2, Turku, Finland July 17-18, 2008

The University of Turku Faculty of Law, University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, Michigan State University College of Law, Drake University Law School and IPR University Center jointly invite you to a trans-Atlantic conference on innovation and communications law. For two days, IP and communications law scholars from 10 countries across the globe will come together to present and discuss their research on contemporary legal issues. For a list of confirmed participants click here.

The conference scrutinizes national and international market regulation and asks to what extent existing laws are equipped to handle shifts in structures and new forms of mass-communication. Law and lawyers have an important role in affecting the viability of innovation and communication models, the democratic potential of technologies and related social developments. The conference focuses on how the law can develop to solve problems that arise when traditional laws encounter changed technology or new behavior on the part of the citizenry; be it private or entrepreneurial. See the program for further details.
