The IPKat is delighted to tell you about a couple of upcoming events organised by the Intellectual Property Institute, United Kingdom.
The 2006 Stephen Stewart Memorial Lecture. On Wednesday, 29 November 2006 Andrew Gowers - he of the “Gowers Review of Intellectual Property” - will be giving the prestigious Stephen Stewart Memorial Lecture. A former Editor of the Financial Times, Andrew joined Lehman Brothers as Head of Communications in June 2006; in December 2005 he was appointed to lead an independent review for HM Government of the UK's intellectual property regime. This event is hosted by Slaughter and May: the talk begins at 5.00pm and the evening concludes with discussion and drinks till 7.00pm. There's bound to be a big crowd (it's free!) so book early to avoid disappointment. Application form available here.
Government Copyright – Unlocking Public Sector Information Assets. On Wednesday 15 November 2006, with registration from 4.30pm, McDermott Will & Emery's London office is hosting "Government Copyright – Unlocking Public Information Sector Assets" starring Carol Tullo (and also concluding with discussion and refreshments). Carol is Director of OPSI and Controller and Queen's Printer, Cabinet Office. The subject is a powerful and controversial one; the speaker is an authority on it. Be there! The event is free for students, cheaper for IPI members and fairly priced for non-members. Application form here.
