On October 11-12, 2018, CPIP hosted its Sixth Annual Fall Conference, IP for the Next Generation of Technology, at Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University, in Arlington, Virginia. Our conference addressed how IP rights and institutions can foster and support the next leap forward in technology that is about to break out into consumer products and services.
Without doubt, the highlight of our conference was the keynote address by Dr. Irwin M. Jacobs—the inventor of the digital transmission technology for cell phones that gave birth to the smartphone revolution and the founder of Qualcomm. Dr. Jacobs has been a luminary in the telecommunications industry for many years, and he delighted conference attendees with endearing stories and wonderful insights from his inventive and commercial activities over the years.
We hope you will enjoy Dr. Jacobs’ keynote address as much as we do!
