Happy World Intellectual Property Day
Today is World Intellectual Property Day. If you are like me, your firm has not yet grasped the significance of this sacred day and you are at work, hopefully contributing to the rule of law for intellectual property somewhere in the world. The US Chamber of Commerce has released a study claiming that 60% of US exports come from intellectual property "intensive" industries. The debate over fair use versus strict regulation continues, but the competition in the marketplace of ideas and expression will continue forever.
