|Stefania||Fusco||2190 Eck Hall of Law||Stefania.Fusco.firstname.lastname@example.org||http://ssrn.com/author=650799|| || ||Dr. Stefania Fusco's research concentrates on intellectual property law and finance. She earned a J.S.D. from Stanford Law School where she was also a Kaufmann Fellow and a Transatlantic Technology Law Forum Fellow. For her doctoral dissertation, she conducted an interdisciplinary empirical investigation on patent protection and financial methods. Her publications engage with several IP issues including: the impact of patent protection on financial innovation, rules versus standards in patent law and the international negotiations on geographical indications on products. She is currently writing about patents issued by the Venetian Republic between the 15th and 18th centuries in relation to the modern debate on the tailoring of patent protection. She is also investigating the activity of non-practicing entities in the U.S. and the EU.
Fusco has presented her research at several national IP conferences. She joined the faculty at DePaul College of Law as a visiting assistant professor in Fall 2012. In 2014, she became a senior lecturer at Notre Dame Law School. She teaches International Intellectual Property, Patents and Corporate Finance.|| ||<i>The Venetian Republic’s Tailoring of Patent Protection to the Characteristic of the Invention</i> (forthcoming)
