Consumer Project on Technology
The Consumer Project on Technology was started in 1995. Our work is documented extensively on the CPTech web page. Currently CPTech is focusing on issues concerning the production of and access to knowledge, including medical inventions, information and cultural goods, and other knowledge goods. Much of this work concerns intellectual property policy and practices, but some of it concerns different approaches to the production of knowledge goods, including for example new business models that support creative individuals and communities, and new incentive systems for investments in medical and agricutural inventions, such as those involving prizes and/or competitive Intermediaries. We also do some work on electronic commerce and competition policy.
