The Centre for Transformative Innovation & Swinburne Law School Research Seminar Series presents “Percolating IP Law through Circuit Stewardship: Empirical and Jurisprudential Analysis of En Banc Review” by Professor Ryan Vacca, University of New Hampshire School of Law.

Perhaps more than any other field of law, intellectual property has been buffeted by the relentless and unpredictable force of technological change. Advances in digital technology and biotechnology over the past three decades have transformed society and reshaped the contours of patent, copyright, and trademark law to a greater extent than perhaps during any other comparable period in U.S. history.

This project provides historical, empirical, and comparative evidence about the use of en banc review for resolving intellectual property disputes and examines its actual and potential role in adapting intellectual property law to technological change.
