User Generated Law

Graphic with computertabs

The fast pace of technological and commercial development in the knowledge society challenge intellectual property law due to the time lag and inflexibility of the traditional model of legal regulation, which is based on statutory law. As a response new non-legislative regulatory models have emerged.

The research project “User Generated Law – Re-constructing Law in the Knowledge Society” (2012-2014) looks at these user generated regulatory models.

A international conference with leading international researchers and a conference on “IP Governance by Private Collective Entities” have been held in March 2014.

The research will be published in a book on User Generated Law (Ed. Thomas Riis) with Edward Elgar in 2015/16 .
