    BookIT IP Series featuring Jessica Silbey, Suffolk University Law School

    Professor Jessica Silbey of Suffolk University Law School will discuss her forthcoming work titled The Eureka Myth: Creators, Innovators, and Everyday Intellectual Property.

    The following excerpt is taken from the book jacket:
    Incentivizing the "progress of science and the useful arts" has been the goal of intellectual property law since our constitutional beginnings. The Eureka Myth cuts through the current debates and goes straight to the source: the artists and innovators themselves. Silbey makes sense of the intersections between intellectual property law and creative and innovative activity by centering on the stories told by artists, scientists, their employers, lawyers and managers, describing how and why they create and innovate and whether or how IP law plays a role in their activities. Their employers, business partners, managers, and lawyers also describe their role in facilitating the creative and innovative work. Silbey's connections and distinctions made between the stories and statutes serve to inform present and future innovative and creative communities.

    The BookIT IP Series is co-sponsored by the IP Program and the Center for Empirical Studies in Intellectual Property. Lunch will be provided.
