GOING DOWN IN HISTORY

The IPKat’s masters, Jeremy and Ilanah, are preparing a research paper called “Going Down in History: Does History Have Anything to Offer Today’s Intellectual Property Lawyer?”. We are set to deliver this paper at a Research Seminar funded by the Economic and Social Research Council on Friday 23 January. It is our contention that the discipline of history, if used properly, may shed valuable light on our understanding of intellectual property law and practice, but that its utility is limited by methodological and other issues. We’d quite like some feedback on the first draft so, if you’d like to read it, email us and we’ll send you a copy of the text as it stands so far.
