Concurring Opinions Symposium Explores Professor Sunder's From Goods to a Good Life

Professor Madhavi Sunder's new book, From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice, is the subject of an online symposium at Concurring Opinions, a group blog with a broad emphasis on legal topics. 

A wide range of distinguished legal scholars have posted or are slated to participate, including American University Washington College of Law Professor Mike Carroll, American University Professor Laura DeNardis, Cardozo School of Law Professor Brett Frischmann, University of Pittsburgh School of Law Professor Mike Madison, Notre Dame Law School Professor Mark McKenna, Seton Hall Law Professor Frank Pasquale, University of Washington School of Law Professor Zahr Said, Indiana University School of Law Associate Professor Lea Bishop Shaver, Suffolk University Law School Professor Jessica Silbey, and UC Berkeley School of Law Professor Molly Van Houweling.

From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice, published by Yale University Press, explores the impact of intellectual property on social and cultural life.  While most analyses have viewed intellectual property primarily in terms of how it promotes or impedes innovation, Professor Sunder's book "turns to social and cultural theory to more fully explore the deep connections between cultural production and human freedom," according to the Yale University Press description.

Madhavi Sunder is a Professor of Law at King Hall whose special interests included intellectual property, law and culture studies, women's rights, and international intellectual property.
