Credible and green: can you help?

Do Kats have pets? This one does. The Intellectual Property Institute, apart from being one of the IPKat's pet causes, is currently working with its members to identify credible research which will underpin the public's understanding of the role of IP in developing and disseminating new, environmental technologies, as well as the relative importance of IP in this respect, compared to other factors (infrastructural, regulatory, political etc.).

Right: man eating greens

In this context the Institute has become aware of a series of literature reviews carried out by Daniel K. N. Johnson and his colleague Kristina M. Lybecker in the US, at the University of Colorado, which deal with:
* The impact of IP on the development of new environmental technologies (here);
* The impact of the IP system on the dissemination of environmental technologies (here);
* Models for financing the development of environmental technologies (here).
The Institute hopes to build up comprehensive data set of the existing information on this issue from credible sources and asks readers of this weblog that, if they are aware of any specific papers, articles or research activity of which they think the Institute should be aware, can they please email Dr Paul Leonard here and let him know.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
