Somin Featured on Eminent Domain/IP Panel

On April 21, 2015, Professor Ilya Somin participated in a panel discussion on “Intellectual Property and Eminent Domain.” The discussion, hosted by the Hofstra Center for Intellectual Property Law, explored the types of situations that would give rise to constitutionally cognizable takings, how different definitions of public use affect the government’s ability to take intellectual property, and how boundaries should be drawn between government-driven infringements and takings.

Joining Somin for the discussion were Professor Irina Manta from Hofstra Law, Clarisa Long from Columbia Law School, and Gregory Dolin from the University of Baltimore School of Law.
