Utilitarianism is today the dominant approach to thinking about intellectual property law. Despite this reality, in numerous domains intellectual property regimes successfully incorporate a variety of different values in both their structure and in their functioning. This conference will for the first time bring together scholars of intellectual property to examine the means, mechanisms, devices, and more fundamentally—the very desirability—of intellectual property attempting to incorporate these plural values into its working.
