AALS CFP: Corpus Linguistics & IP

The following is a CFP for the 2020 AALS Annual Meeting, co-sponsored by the Sections on IP and Law & Interpretation

Recent developments in data-based text analysis provide tantalizing opportunities to transform constitutional and statutory analysis. They may also provide new opportunities to understand infringing similarities in patent claims and copyrightable expression and to track the acquisition and loss of source significance. This panel will consider how corpus linguistic and other data-driven text analysis techniques might transform our understanding of how IP rights are acquired, shaped, and enforced.

The Sections on Intellectual Property and Law & Interpretation are pleased to announce a Call for Papers from which up to three additional presenters will be selected for the above program, to be held during the 2020 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, January 5, at 3:30pm.

We welcome 500-word proposals for presentations on this subject, to be submitted by August 15, 2019. Please send proposals electronically to Professors Jake Linford (Florida State) at [email protected] and Karen Petroski (Saint Louis) at [email protected] Presentations will be selected after review by members of the Executive Committees of both sections and the Program Committee of the Section on Law & Interpretation. Please contact Karen Petroski and/or Jake Linford with any inquiries or questions.

Sounds great, but how does it relate to the Upper Peninsula?
