International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property
9th Annual Workshop
CILP & the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, Canada
July 12-14, 2017
‘Intellectual Property as Circulation and Control’
This year’s workshop will seek to explore all aspects of the circulation/control dilemma from historical and/or contemporary perspectives. Modalities of control that might be considered include: licensing practices; distribution and business models; collectivization; cultural appropriation; authors, inventors and ownership; criminal provisions; international trade agreements; technological means of control such as technological protection measures, anti-circumvention laws, search engines and aggregators; surveillance and policing by law enforcement agencies, ISPs, trolls; and organized resistance to corporate control by users and pirate movements.
