Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property

The Program is unique in its efforts to infuse IP and information law analysis and practice with a commitment to promoting social justice. This commitment arises from a recognition that IP protections do more than create incentives to create and innovate, they structure the distribution of essential cultural and scientific resources in ways that can have direct and unjust social, class and global impacts.
