Description

In this panel, we hope to address the intersection of patent law, technology incentivization, and environmental law. Using the both government involvement and private sphere involvement in clean technology incentivization, we hope to explore whether such measures and further measures can achieve the goal of bringing green and clean technologies to market and whether as a society we should be using patent law and other government incentives to encourage bringing such products to market.
