The IPKat is pleased to see that the Intellectual Property Institute, together with the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association, is holding an afternoon seminar on the ruling in Oakley v Animal [2005] EWHC 210 (Ch). IPKat readers (see blog, 23 February 2005)) will instantly recall that this is the case in which Peter Prescott QC stunned the unsuspecting world by suggesting that the UK's Design Regulations 2001 were both unconstitutional and in breach of EU law since they were implemented later than the cut-off date for implementation mentioned in the Design Directive.

Peter Prescott QC gave a bracing decision -- but will it withstand appeal?

The seminar, hosted by Bird & Bird, will take place on Wednesday 30 June from 1.30pm to 5pm, followed by drinks and light refreshments. Speakers are Guy Tritton, Martin Chamberlain and Neville March-Hunnings, For further details email Anne Goldstein here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
