WASHINGTON, DC — April 26, 2013 —
Intellectual property plays a more important role than ever in driving innovation and creativity, BSA | The Software Alliance said today in a blog post marking World IP Day.
“In industry, policy and academic circles, there are ongoing debates about how best to ensure that IP rights and protections are optimally calibrated to provide the right incentives for today’s creators and innovators,” wrote BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “But while it is important to have thoughtful discussions about the particulars of IP law, it is equally important not to lose sight of the big picture, which is that IP has never been more important to economic growth and social progress… So the question most worth pondering on this World IP Day and in ongoing debates is not whether or how IP plays a role in encouraging innovation and creativity, but how best to sustain it.”
