January 17, 2009 • 9:30 AM • Law School 4047
Main Content

Public lands, unownable ideas, markets for eggs and surrogates, slaves in court, and the economics of sharing are some of the issues that will be discussed at this interdisciplinary investigation of property and its borders. The workshop is prompted by the publication of James Boyle's new book, The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind (Yale University Press 2008), but its topic is a wider one. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of the Public Domain. For more information, contact Balfour Smith at
