Irrational Rationality

Welcome to Intellectual Arbitrator!

As lawyers, we try to act rationally. We try to make sense of the world, its laws, and its actors. But sometimes, the most rational thing to do is understand that sometimes we are irrational.

One of the best fruits of reason is to perceive how irrational we are. — G. Santanya

Intellectual Property and International Arbitration have been seen as separate fields for many years. But the time has come and society is ripe to look at the nexus of these two previously disparate areas of law. Here, we will explore how the two can work together.

This is the place for those with an interest in intellectual property, international arbitration, intellectual property international arbitration, and especially all the things in between. With the increased value of intellectual property in today’s marketplace as well as the world generally, combined with the increased globalization of everything from business transactions and legal disputes to trade and culture, international and harmonized dispute resolution mechanisms such as arbitration have become not only more prevalent, but more vital to the growth of society.

The problem: Arbitration lawyers often do not know enough of intellectual property and intellectual property lawyers often do not know enough about arbitration.

The problem is, arbitration practitioners and scholars often do not know enough of intellectual property and intellectual property practitioners and scholars often do not know enough about arbitration. This newsletter will provide information, resources, and updates on ongoing cases in the world of intellectual property, the world of arbitration, and the growing world of IP arbitration. The goal of Intellectual Arbitrator is to not only disseminate information about both fields but also to provide a platform for individuals to have meaningful and informed discussions.
