"Governing Knowledge Commons": BookIT IP Series event featuring Michael Madison, University of Pittsburgh School of LawProfessor Michael J. Madison of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law will discuss his work, edited with Brett M. Frischmann and Katherine J. Strandburg, titled Governing Knowledge Commons. Knowledge commons are the subject of enormous recent interest and enthusiasm with respect to policy making about innovation, creative production, and intellectual property. Taking that enthusiasm as its starting point, this book argues that policy making should be based on evidence and on deeper understanding of what makes commons institutions tick. This BookIT IP Series event is co-sponsored by the IP Program and the Center for Empirical Studies in Intellectual Property. Lunch will be provided.
