Please join the Niskanen Center for an event on Capitol Hill–“Patents: Private Property or Economic Regulation?”— on Thursday, September 19th at 12:00pm in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, SVC 214.

The event will present a paper by former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement on the topic, and include a panel discussion with Niskanen Center’s Brink Lindsey, R Street’s Charles Duan, and Innovation Defense Foundation’s Wayne Brough, moderated by Insight Public Affairs’ Sasha Moss.

Clement’s paper follows the release of “Why ‘Intellectual Property’ is a Misnomer” by Brink Lindsey and Daniel Takash. The event will reconsider the role of intellectual property policy, specifically calling into question whether it is, in fact, “property” or merely another form of economic regulation.

Please RSVP using the link here. We look forward to your attendance.
