America's Future in Innovation

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • David Kappos

Sunday 13th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property David Kappos is charged with Advising the Secretary of Commerce, and the President of the United States, on all aspects of Intellectual Property policy.

Our nation faces an uncertain economic future. It is clear however, that in order to be successful, America will need to harness the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation of its people—America will need to harness its Intellectual Property.

A sound Intellectual Property system will help support R&D that propels the Green Tech revolution; will allow people to harness the power of digitization and an internet-connected world; and will better ensure the preservation of cultural diversity and drive growth of the creative arts.

Under Secretary Kappos will lay out his vision for the future of the Intellectual Property system and describe its impact on the world’s entrepreneurs, innovators, and creators.
