First international conference on IP in Jewish law


In late June, law firm JMB Factor & Co sponsored a full day conference on intellectual property in Jewish law in Jerusalem, in conjunction with Yad HaRav Herzog.

The programme featured an impressive line-up of leading IP scholars, authorities on Jewish law and academics specialising in Hebraic law and Jewish history.

Yad HaRav Herzog is a non-profit organisation that publishes the Talmudic Encyclopedia and related texts.

A former president of Jerusalem’s Supreme Rabbinic Court, Rabbinic Judge Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, spoke about the possibility that conditioning a sale, as discussed in Talmudic literature, is equivalent to software licences. He provided a traditional Jewish equivalent to modern copyright.
