Major Intellectual Property Developments of 2006 for Scholars of Composition, Rhetoric, and Communication

The first of the enumerated goals in the Intellectual Property Committee of CCCC’s mission statement reads as follows: “keep the CCCC and NCTE memberships informed about intellectual property developments, through reports in the CCCC newsletter and in other NCTE and CCCC forums.”  To this end, the Intellectual Property Committee is, with this publication, delivering its second annual report on major developments in intellectual property law, policy, and research. The following four articles — written by volunteer scholars from the Intellectual Property Caucus (CCCC-IP) — will serve to inform and orient others in the field who increasingly find themselves engaged with intellectual property questions as they pursue their teaching and research. I am grateful for these contributions to our better understanding of these challenging and fluid concepts.
