Episode Description

Intellectual property is the driver of 21st century’s global economy. And the incentive to develop new products and invest in the commercialization of inventions and creative works depends on protection of IP rights in multiple jurisdictions. But emerging technologies, new media, globalization and new distribution channels present a host of new challenges. My guest, Massimo Sterpi of Jacobacci & Assoc. deals with those challenges every day in national and international courts. Calling in from Rome he'll talk about 21st century protection trademarks, designs, copyright and patents-and of cultural or iconic brands. What are the special needs of small and medium size enterprises? What are the new boundaries of the notion of artwork? What issues are raised by raised by digital and internet-based art? What do you need to know about approaches of different regions or different legal systems such as the Anglo Saxon and Continental European approaches? What about IP in emerging markets?
