On Friday, October, 1, the University of San Francisco School of Law will convene a symposium addressing two of the key legal issues that could impact technology diffusion: intellectual property rules and utility regulation.

Recognizing the strong connection between utility regulation and technology development, one panel will assess California utility policies’ impact on distributed generation resources, like wind and solar power. The next two panels will focus on intellectual property. Acknowledging the potential tension between the goals of technology innovation and technology diffusion, one panel will address existing and alternative intellectual property rules in the domestic context. The next panel will consider the role of intellectual property rules in international technology transfer to developing countries, a transfer that is critical to achieving global emissions reductions.
