EFF activists and lawyers will be participating in Innovate/Activate, a 2-day conference on IP activism.
Date: April 20-21, 2012
Location: UC Berkeley Law School
About this conference: Innovate / Activate is an event on intellectual property and activism. It's about spurring change through the thoughtful consideration of IP. It's about reexamining our approaches to improving global welfare by diagnosing new and existing IP-related challenges to activism, developing strategies for overcoming IP obstacles, and delivering practical solutions. It's about identifying additional tools for a more effective activism that is capable of challenging our accepted notions of freedom and equality.
