6th Annual Penn Intellectual Property Group Symposium
Presentations and discussions will focus on the evolving dynamic between traditional producers and consumers through the lens of video game development, fan fiction, and 3D printing. The conference will examine intellectual property issues and the tension that arises between rights holders and potential infringers when consumers become independent from mainstream producers and take on an active consumer role more involved in the creation process such as activity in design or customization of the end product.
