Innovation Commerce: Intellectual Property 2.0

The next frontier to push our global economies forward hinges on how we exchange the value of the world's imagination and make it more collaborative and creative.
Indexing information (search engines) and sharing associations (social media) have added context to our world, catalyzed change, and outsourced the human consciousness to our devices. Tools like Google and platforms like Facebook could have not existed before they executed their missions and scaled their visions. Our world is ready for a new paradigm of creating value.
Welcome to Innovation Commerce for SXSWi 2014.
