Introduction to the Intellectual Property Working Group


Hi, I’m Adam Mossoff, Professor of Law at
Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University and I’m Chair of the Intellectual Property working group at the Regulatory Transparency Project of the Federalist Society. The purpose of the Intellectual Property working
group in the Regulatory Transparency Project is to study the legal institutions and rules
that form the foundation of the creative industries and innovation industries. The ways in which artists, inventors, and
many other innovators and creators have the fruits of their productive labors secured
to them and produce all of the great new technology, artistic works, movies, songs, books, and all the things that make our modern lives a miracle today. These are all secured by intellectual property laws and they can also be undermined by those same laws. For instance, sometimes Congress creates laws
or creates a regulatory agency mistakenly, structured around a problem which might exist,
but the agency ends up creating more problems and more costs: hampering innovation, preventing
creativity. If you’re interested in learning more about
what the Intellectual Property working group does, visit the Regulatory Transparency Project
at R-E-G-Project.org and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. Watch our videos, listen to our podcasts,
but, even more importantly, read our papers.
