In this inaugural edition of the IP Hot Topics podcast, we kick off our Innovation Conversations series. We’re joined by renowned author, analyst, journalist, historian and Tulane University professor Walter Isaacson. Professor Isaacson explains key traits that great innovators share and examines how specific structures and a frontier mentality made the U.S. fertile ground for innovation. After exploring the roots of intellectual property protection, the discussion with Isaacson explores COVID-19 research as an opportunity to strike a necessary balance while serving the good of humankind.
