UNH Law Hosts 2nd Annual IP Scholars’ Roundtable

With focus on "Intellectual Property and the Constitution"

UNH Law, and its Franklin Center for Intellectual Property, will be hosting the 2nd Annual IP Scholars' Roundtable on September 28-29. Several dozen IP scholars from around the country will gather for two days of presentations and discussions. According to Professor Mary Wong, director of the Franklin Pierce Center for IP, "the idea is for intellectual property and constitutional law scholars to discuss and exchange views on the topic, in an informal and intimate academic environment."

This follows upon last year's inaugural IP Scholars' Roundtable, which was part of the opening weekend for UNH Law's new Franklin Pierce Center for IP building.

The session topics for this year's roundtable will be:

  • SETTING THE STAGE: IP & THE CONSTITUTION IN CONTEXT
  • PATENTS & COPYRIGHT (I) – CLAIM CONSTRUCTION, INTERPRETATION & THE LANDSCAPE AFTER GOLAN v HOLDER
  • COPYRIGHT: PRE-EMPTION & NEW PROTECTIONS
  • COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARKS & THE FIRST AMENDMENT
