Windsor Law professor Myra Tawfik (left) along with LTEC Lab scholar-in-residence Karima Bawa wrote an opinion piece for the Globe and Mail regarding the arms race of innovation and intellectual property being critical to Canadian efforts.
The authors note that we are witnessing a surge of new technologies and an aggressive pursuit for global dominance through IP ownership. In an economic race to the top, if Canada donesn't step up our IP game we risk being left behind.
They continue by stating that IP education has to extend outside of the law school setting. Raising the levels of IP awareness should extend into every discipline within the postsecondary setting.
