A couple of weeks ago the IPKat mentioned a forthcoming seminar catalysed by the IP Finance weblog on "IP rights and the UNCITRAL secured transaction project: the draft recommendation and their potential consequences for British lenders and IP owners". The keynote speaker is Spiros Bazinas (Senior Legal Officer, UNCITRAL's International Trade Law Division), who is [per the IPKat] one of only about half a dozen people on the planet who have a real grasp of this complex yet vital area of commerce.
This event takes place on the afternoon of 14 October in the London offices of law firm Olswang LLP. So far over 50 participants have registered for the seminar, which is free of charge and carries 2.45 CPD points, and it looks as though the venue will be booked to its capacity quite soon. To avoid disappointment, if you'd like to attend but haven't yet done so please email Sandra Holloway, who will inscribe you on the list of attendees.
