Antitrust and Innovation Symposium May 20-21

What is the impact of enforcement and competition policy on creativity and innovation in business? How can policy encourage innovators to develop new business models and products while thriving in a competitive marketplace? These questions, along with analysis of the factors impacting innovation–the economic landscape, mergers and business conduct, and intellectual property law, among them–are the focus of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law’s national Antitrust and Innovation Symposium, cosponsored by Stanford Law School, May 20-21, 2010.

Sessions begin at 3 p.m. on May 20 and at 9 a.m. on May 21.

Stanford Law Professor Mark A. Lemley is a featured speaker on “Panel I: Innovation Policy and Economics—What Drives Innovation?” Thursday, May 20 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
