Intellectual Property Initiative


About the Initiative

Technology and innovation continue to radically influence intellectual property (IP) law. In a world where people interact with the products of creators everyday—music, television and movies, electronics, furniture, and beyond—the careful study of IP law is crucial. Since 2014, Silicon Flatirons has engaged University of Colorado Law students and faculty and a broad community of alumni, policymakers, scholars, practitioners, and industry leaders in programming addressing emerging issues in IP law, copyright law in particular.

Since its inception, the Intellectual Property Initiative has sought to convene stakeholders that wouldn’t normally be in the same room, encouraging the free exchange of ideas. Seeking to remedy a shortcoming of conventional copyright programming—a lack of input from creators themselves—we include artists in all conversations, spotlighting their valuable perspectives.




Intellectual Property Initiative Events draw a wide range of artists, lawmakers, and students.
