The Gruter Institute for Law and Behavioral Research believes it is time to look once again at the interaction of the rules of intellectual property with the evolved psychology of human beings. In recent years, our understanding of human motivation, thought and behavior has been greatly enriched by the contributions of cognitive neuroscience and related fields. We believe that the emerging synthesis can provide newly fruitful starting points for advancing the study of the law and institutions of both property and intellectual property. The Gruter Institute co-sponsored a one-day workshop, on April 28, 2005 at the Center for Advanced Study of the Behavioral Sciences to explore these concerns, and addressed these concerns again in a conference co-sponsored by the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property in Munich, Germany in September 2006. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the task, we have invited diverse participants from many fields of law, science, industry and practice to participate in the initiative.
