Laws of Creation by Ron Cass and Keith HyltonThe historic approach to encouraging innovation and creativity by granting property rights, enshrined in the text of the U.S. Constitution, has come under attack by a growing number of legal theorists and technologists. In a new book, Laws of Creation, Ronald Cass and Keith Hylton take on these critics with a vigorous defense of intellectual property law. The authors carefully examine the IP doctrines that have been developed over many years in patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret law.  Does the current regulatory regime spur creativity and economic growth, or do they produce licenses that stifle progress and innovation?
