GMU/Microsoft Conference on The Regulation of Innovation and Economic Growth, May 4

The George Mason/Microsoft Conference Series on the Law and Economics of Innovation will bring together leading academics to present and discuss new scholarship touching on diverse aspects of a key question affecting the technology industry and the process of innovation. Each conference will conclude with a roundtable discussion among top technology industry representatives and regulators to begin to assess the concrete implications of the scholarship for the development of innovative industries.

This first conference in the series will address the complex problem of regulation and how regulation fosters or impedes economic growth through innovation: How should a jurisdiction, particularly an emerging or developing economy, approach its IP or its antitrust regime if it seeks to maximize economic growth—to optimize the role of innovation in growth?
