The University of Louisville will host the second annual Conference on Innovation and Communication Law on August 21 and 22, 2009. The Conference, a follow-up to the 2008 conference held in Turku, Finland, is a cooperative effort of the University of Louisville School of Law, University of Turku Faculty of Law, Drake University Law School, Michigan State University College of Law, and the IPR Center in Helsinki, Finland.

This year's conference will focus mainly on the role intellectual property and communications law play in the dissemination of information. As a result, discussion will focus less on the creation of rights, and more on how the legal system helps (or hinders) the development of knowledge. For example, we anticipate one or more sessions dealing with licensing and franchising issues. Other possible topics might include the role of intellectual property registration, the law governing trade secrets and confidential information, remedy issues, and the special case of university inventions and works. Because many of the participants will come from countries other than the United States, proposals with an international or comparative law perspective are especially encouraged.
