Professor Chander Presents at European Policy for Intellectual Property Conference

Professor Anupam Chander presented a paper at the annual European Policy for Intellectual Property (EPIP) Conference at the University of Bordeaux in early September. Professor Chander also served on the international organizing committee for the conference, the theme of which was “Claims on Area: The Geography-IP Interface.” EPIP is a leading European platform for the analysis and discussion of intellectual property systems and intangible assets, and its annual conference draws intellectual property scholars from across Europe and around the world.

Professor Chander presented on “Intermediary Liability and the Geography of Cyberspace” on a panel entitled “Cyber/Space.” The presentation drew  on a paper published in the journal of the World Intellectual Property Organization.

Senior Associate Dean Madhavi Sunder presented a work at the same conference that was co-authored with Professor Chander. That paper, “From TPP to RCEP: The Battle to Define Asia’s Intellectual Property Law” is forthcoming in the UC Irvine Law Review.

The California International Law Center cosponsored the conference, which also featured a presentation by UC Davis School of Law Professor Peter Lee.

Professor Chander, Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Law at UC Davis School of Law, is a leading scholar of international economic law and cyberlaw. He is the author of The Electronic Silk Road: How the Web Binds the World in Commerce, published in 2013 by Yale University Press.
