|"Let's Blow Up Parliament!" is a great concept, Guy, but are you|
sure -- are you really sure -- that it's not been done before?"
This seminar, which runs on 9 March, is hosted by Hardwicke, in its congenial den in Londonn's historical Lincoln's Inn. It has a half-day structure (11am to 3pm), to allow locals to check their emails before attending and to give non-locals more travel time so they don't have to leave home in the dark. The cast of speakers is unusual in that it has no fewer than three Kats on parade: Jeremy, Birgit and Annsley. The full programme runs like this:
Jeremy Phillips (IP consultant, Olswang LLP) will be in the chair, among other places.* Fact and fiction: recent UK case law on protecting plots (Mark Engelman, Hardwicke)* Protecting computer games and business programs: is it possible? (Shireen Peermohamed, Harbottle & Lewis)* Music themes (Nick Kounoupias, DHM Stallard)* Plots, themes and formats - a US overview (Annsley Merelle Ward, Collyer Bristow)* How do other countries handle these problems? (Rebecca Dimaridis, Jeffrey Green Russell)* If copyright won’t provide protection, what of other IP rights? (Birgit Clark, Berwin Leighton Paisner)
The event carries three whole CPD points and, inclusive of a tasty lunch and VAT at the new rate of 20%, still costs just £70. For further details and registration click here or email Lisa Pick. You can even phone Lisa on +44 20 7242 2523. Since previous Hardwicke half-day seminars have turned out to be very popular, early booking is advised.
