A special edition of the IP News Weekly focuses on green technology and intellectual property policy. I've posted additional resources here:
Judge Randall R. Rader (US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit) discusses the value of a strong IP system in maintaining an innovative economy, not only for the 'industrial giants' but also for developing nations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB3OROLi9IM
Take a look at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's release on World IP Day, too:
"U.S. Chamber Recognizes World IP Day", April 24, 2009: http://www.theglobalipcenter.com/index.php/news/press-releases/164.
World IP Day is Sunday, April 26, 2009. For more information, visit www.wipo.int.
