It Isn't Really Stealing, Is It? Criminal Law and Intellectual Property

Tuesday, April 9, 2013 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Registration for this program is now closed. Please see the full listing for upcoming IPE programs.
The 2013 Rutgers Business Law Review symposium will examine developments involving the use of criminal law to protect and enforce intellectual property rights. On the one hand, there is a view that accessing certain digital information and copying it is not theft. On the other hand, there is an increasing use of the criminal law to protect and enforce intellectual property rights. A panel of distinguished speakers will discuss recent developments in the law trending towards increased criminalization of theft of intellectual property, and whether that trend makes sense from a policy point of view.

Topics will include:
• Recent cases involving the Economic Espionage Act.
• Assessments of the current movement of the law towards increased criminalization of theft of Intellectual Property from a defense, prosecution and academic perspective, including a novel approach to defining and analyzing theft by nationally recognized scholar Professor Stuart Green
• Strategies from both defense and prosecuting attorneys in approaching, defending and pursing cases involving theft of intellectual property.
