February 02, 2018

“Intellectual property is a tool for economic growth,” Professor Doris Long of John Marshall Law School Chicago told Ateneo Law School students during her lecture at the International Intellectual Property Protection forum.

Held January 29, 2018 at the Veritas Hall, APS, Ateneo Rockwell Campus, Prof. Long also recognized intellectual property as a tool in improving people’s lives.

“Intellectual property protects innovative and creative people. It assures that if someone comes up with something creative, you get money from it, build business, earn a living and improve people’s lives,” said Long.

She added “If you give people the protection, they could have exclusive rights so they can earn money and start in the industry. You can’t do that if you don’t have the initial protections in place. And that requires enforcement.”

Long, a professor and chair of John Marshall Law School’s Intellectual Property, Information Technology and Privacy Group, specializes in international intellectual property law. She has lectured on intellectual property, international art, e-commerce, culture, technology and innovation in conferences throughout the United States and in more than 30 countries.

The lecture was presented by the Commercial Law and Intellectual Property Department of the Ateneo School of Law headed by Atty. Jose Maria Hofileña in collaboration with the US Embassy Manila represented by Economic Officer Brian Breuhaus.
