Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy (C-IP2)
C-IP2 produces research, education, and service at the intersection of IP and innovation policy to better understand and shape the means of innovation as a positive force for good. We do so by promoting a diverse set of perspectives and voices to present a fuller picture than that of the dominant legal academic literature on the role of IP and other legal mechanisms to transform great ideas into useful or aesthetic artifacts and activities.
