Hugh's news

The IPKat is delighted to announce that Sir Hugh Laddie, formerly the senior judge of the Patents Court and co-author of a seminal tome on copyright law, has been appointed to a newly created Chair in Intellectual Property Law in the UCL Faculty of Laws, where he will spearhead the development of intellectual property law courses.

Taking up his position this September, Sir Hugh is a big piece in the jigsaw of UCL’s strategy of expanding its activity in the field of intellectual property law, following the appointment earlier this year of rising star Lior Zemer (currently at the University of Leicester) as a specialist intellectual property law lecturer. The college also enjoys the support of IPKat co-bloggie Jeremy, who has been a Visiting Professor there for some years.

The IPKat wishes Sir Hugh every good fortune in his new position and looks forward to enjoying his academic contributions to the subject he has helped to create through his years at the Bar and on the Bench.

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.
