The Piracy Paradox by Kal Raustiala and Christopher Jon Sprigman, has upended the traditional justification of intellectual property as a necessary incentive to innovation by convincingly demonstrating that innovation, paradoxically, thrives in the fashion industry even without strong protection. Scholarship about “IP’s negative space” has proliferated in the fifteen years since the article’s publication.

In this symposium, Professors Raustiala and Sprigman are joined by leading scholars in presenting their forthcoming articles reflecting on the piracy paradox after a period of change and a tumultuous year where industry, production, and consumer behavior have been severely disrupted.
