On Ensuring That Intellectual Property Public Policy Promotes Progress

This article, from EDUCAUSE Review, vol. 44, no. 1 (January/February 2009): 4–5, describes the institution's need to balance between encouraging "the creation of intellectual property by giving to the creator a property right" with the benefit to society "by the early and wide availability of knowledge". The author describes the benefits of maintaining this balance.
