The Intellectual Property and Information Law Program at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law hosted the 17th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference on August 10-11, 2017.

The IP Scholars Conference brought together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The conference was co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, DePaul University College of Law; the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, Stanford Law School; and the Intellectual Property and Information Law Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University.

IPSC 2017 featured presentations on all IP-related topics, including, but not limited to, copyright, trademark, patent, design patent, trade secret and right of publicity.

The IPSC format was designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help scholars hone their ideas. Papers presented were works in progress that benefitted from substantial commentary and revision. Because of the importance of group discussion, attendees and presenters were asked to plan to stay for the entire conference.
