Help Us Draft A Statement Of Innovation Principles

Last week, we talked about our philosophy of hacking policy through innovation, not lobbying. This week, we’re inviting everyone to get involved in one example of this philosophy in action.

In this world of rapid technological innovation, nobody can truly claim their efforts stand alone. Everything is built upon previous innovations, and everyone benefits from those who took a pro-innovation stance when building their businesses and technologies. Today, everyone bears some of the responsibility for ensuring that we continue to promote innovation rather than stymie it, and it’s to that end that Copia is creating the Statement of Innovation Principles: a clear, robust statement for innovative companies to sign on to, laying out a variety of principles that they intend to uphold in order to promote future innovation, ranging from how they deal with data and intellectual property to how they structure their APIs and developers’ kits.

Welcome To The New Copia Website

Today we’re happy to unveil this website, the new online home for the Copia institute. But it’s much more than that: it’s a showcase for all the ideas, tools, research and other resources that Copia creates.

Firstly, it’s home to this blog, where we’ll be posting the latest news and announcements but also some big ideas about innovation from Copia and our members. Additionally, we’re rapidly growing The Copia Library, stocked with research reports, white papers, videos from our events and other useful material.
