Intellectual Property: Protecting or Polluting Innovation?

A session at GigaOM Mobilize 2011

Monday 26th September, 2011

11:10am to 11:30am (PST)

Headlines have been dominated lately by the astronomically sized lawsuits being filed by technology giants against other tech giants. Clearly, intellectual property is back in vogue on an industry-sized scale. In this talk, we assemble IP thought leaders and owners to look at why IP has come back into fashion and whether the focus on IP protects smaller companies or hinders innovation.
