Prof. Fisher's Hale and Dorr Chair Lecture

On Wednesday night, HLS feted Prof. William W. (“Terry”) Fisher III as he received the Hale and Dorr Intellectual Property chair.  It was an exceptional event: a standing-room-only crowd in Austin East and a lecture, prompted by Dean Elena Kagan’s inauguration of a new-to-HLS-but-nonetheless-venerable tradition, on the state of the field of the freshly-chaired professor.  The lecture, entitled “The Disaggregation of Intellectual Property,” is online here as part of the Berkman media library, and well worth the hour spent watching it.  It’s rare to see someone endeavor to describe the state of their field — let alone a field as complex as intellectual property law — and Prof. Fisher does an exceptional job of it.
