A Conversation with Rep. Kevin Kiley on U.S. Intellectual Property Leadership
On Tuesday, December 12th from 4:00pm - 4:45pm ET CSIS will be hosting Rep. Kevin Kiley (R-CA) for a discussion examining the role of intellectual property (IP) in technological innovation and geopolitical competition today.
Rep. Kiley is a member of the House Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet and former IP attorney who prosecuted a civil case against China's Huawei Technologies for IP theft.
The United States’ economic and national security rests on technological innovation, which is upheld by a system of secure intellectual property (IP) rights. Secure IP rights simultaneously protect smaller actors in the economy by giving entrepreneurs a path to market entry, facilitate collaboration between enterprises, and incentivize the expensive, risky, and long-term investments required to develop new critical technologies.
This online-only event will be moderated by CSIS president John Hamre.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
