A little summer fun
The IPKat has just been reminded of one of the summer's fun events. Called Extreme IP: Stretching the Boundaries, it's the Hogarth Chambers annual summer seminar. Now in its 7th year, this event takes place in the afternoon of Thursday 13 July 2006 at the Royal College of Surgeons, London.
The topics covered include
* Resale Right;
* The Scope of Copyright Protection: the Boundaries of the Ideas/Expression Dichotomy;
* Extreme Defences: Non-IP Defences to IP Actions;
* Olympic Protection and Extreme Trade Marks;
* An Inventor’s Perspective (Mandy Haberman, Inventor of The Anywayup Cup).
For further details email Susan Yacoub here or give her a tinkle on +44 20 7404 0404. The IPKat says Susan will tell you all about the distinguished cast of speakers and she might even let it slip that there are one or two strawberries and a sparkling, much-litigated alcoholic beverage that starts with the letter "C" as a special reward for anyone who stays till the end.
Merpel adds, perhaps they should be serving up the bubbly in Anywayup cups for certain members of the IP fraternity who find themselves vertically challenged after a couple of sips ...
