About this product
- DescriptionAre invation and creativity helped or hindered by our intellectual property laws? In the two hundred plus years since the Constitution enshrined protections for those who create and invate, we're still debating the merits of IP laws and whether or t they actually work as intended. Artists, scientists, businesses, and the lawyers who serve them, as well as the Americans who benefit from their creations all still wonder: what facilitates invation and creativity in our digital age? And what role, if any, do our intellectual property laws play in the growth of invation and creativity in the United States? Incentivizing the progress of science and the useful arts has been the goal of intellectual property law since our constitutional beginnings. The Eureka Myth cuts through the current debates and goes straight to the source: the artists and invators themselves. Silbey makes sense of the intersections between intellectual property law and creative and invative activity by centering on the stories told by artists, scientists, their employers, lawyers and managers, describing how and why they create and invate and whether or how IP law plays a role in their activities. Their employers, business partners, managers, and lawyers also describe their role in facilitating the creative and invative work. Silbey's connections and distinctions made between the stories and statutes serve to inform present and future invative and creative communities. Breaking new ground in its examination of the U.S. ecomy and cultural identity, The Eureka Myth draws out new and surprising conclusions about the sometimes misinterpreted relationships between creativity and intellectual property protections.
