One half of the IPKat (Jeremy) is in Warsaw, Poland, right now, where he is participating in a conference, "Intellectual Property in a Changing Society". This event is organised by TAIEX (the Technical Assistance Information Exchange Office), a branch of the European Commission's Directorate General for Enlargement, in conjunction with WIPO and the Polish Patent Office. Jeremy is speaking on Friday about the protection and exploitation of inventions and other subjects of IP protection that are created in the milieu of universities. If you'd like to see his paper, email him and he'll send you a copy on his return. The paper is very much work in progress (he had only a fortnight's notice of his participation in the conference) and it may get developed into something more substantial in the fullness of time. The conference, incidentally, is has some 250 Polish participants, drawn from government, industry, academe and private practice.
