Professor Madhavi Sunder Presents "From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice"

Thursday, August 30

King Hall
4:00 PM

Join Professor Madhavi Sunder and UC Davis School of Law for a special book event at King Hall. 

Most scholarship on intellectual property considers this law from the standpoint of law and economics. Under this conventional wisdom, intellectual property is simply a tool for promoting innovative products, from iPods to R2D2.  In her highly original new book "From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice," UC Davis's own Professor Madhavi Sunder calls for a richer understanding of intellectual property law’s effects on social and cultural life. The book turns to social and cultural theory to more fully explore the deep connections between cultural production and human freedom.

5 P.M. Reception in the King Hall Courtyard
