"Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest" (
The 2011 Congress is intended to help build a “positive agenda” for intellectual property policy in the next decade--one composed of proposals that maximize both technological and cultural innovation and the broader, global public interest. The Congress is intended, first and foremost, to help renew the community needed to think effectively and act collectively on these issues. It will prioritize discussion, networking, and the sharing of resources among roughly 150 academic, practitioner, government and private sector participants from six continents.

The Global Congress is co-organized by American University Washington College of Law’s Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, Fundação Getulio Vargas’s Center for Technology and Society (Brazil), the American Assembly at Columbia University and the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (Geneva), with additional sponsorships from Google Inc., the International Development Research Centre, Open Society Foundation, the Institute for Global and International Studies at George Washington University, Seattle University School of Law, Institute for Information Law and the American University International Law Review.
