Federalist Society’s Intellectual Property Practice Group National Lawyers Convention Panel Online

by Stephan Kinsella on December 3, 2010

From the Federalist Society. It’s very interesting. Richard Espstein’s utilitarian approach seems very flawed to me, but it’s interesting to hear his take–it exemplifies a lot of mainstream thinking about IP policy. It’s unfortunate that the legitimacy of IP seems to be taken for granted by most (?) legal thinkers in the conservative/”libertarian” Federalist Society. At least Epstein mentions that his former student (?) Tom Bell has an anti-IP view (see his Intellectual Privilege: Copyright, Common Law, and the Common Good). Gigi Sohn of Public Knowledge was, I think, the best and most IP- and state-skeptical on the panel.
