You have one last chance to pledge for Adam Mossoff’s webcast on intellectual property! The project has been green-lit, thanks to to pledges already made. (YAY!) So the webcast will be on the evening of Monday, November 15th.

Here’s the basic information, with a few updates:

The webcast will be held — and recorded — on Monday, November 15th, likely around 8 pm ET. It will be between 60 and 90 minutes. Those not attending live will be able to view it on Tuesday.

You must pledge by this Sunday, November 14th at 2 pm ET. Everyone who pledges, whatever the amount, will be able to watch a video recording of the webcast. However, those who pledge a bit more get to be more involved.

If you pledge more than $20, you can submit questions (and vote other others’ questions) in advance. The question form on Google Moderate will be open until Thursday evening, so if you want to do that, please pledge soon!

If you please more than $40, you can attend the live event and participate in the chat. Our space for the live event is limited. But if you don’t attend live, you’ll be able to watch the video recording of the event starting on Tuesday. (You’re also welcome to watch it again and again, even if you do attend live.)

Of course, any pledge amount is welcome! Just remember, you must pledge by this Sunday, November 14th at 2 pm ET.

If you’d like to pledge, you can do so with this form. Even if you’re pledging less than $20, please include your questions in the comment field.

If you have any problems with that embedded form, try this one. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to post them in the comments.

Here’s Professor Mossoff’s proposal for this webcast:

Ayn Rand was the first to recognize that all property is at root intellectual property. The law and history support Rand’s view that all property rights, whether in land, factories, consumer goods, securities, or inventions and books, are made possible by innovators who first conceived of these new values. Professor Mossoff will give a brief overview of the evidence supporting Rand’s view and answer questions about the theory, history, and law of intellectual property.

As that description suggests, the webcast will focus on answering pledgers’ questions about intellectual property.

You can find more on Professor Mossoff on his GMU faculty web page, and you can download many of his papers from his SSRN page.

Also, please note that Professor Mossoff cannot provide legal advice, and thus webcast questions should not concern, directly or indirectly, any legal disputes involving the questioner, either directly or indirectly.
