A Kat Contest and Conference Discount for Kat Readers

Pondering her submission to the Kat Contest...
The 6th Annual IP Trademark, Copyright & Licensing Counsel Forum will be taking place on October 22 – 23 at The University Club in New York City.  Over the course of two days, attendees can earn up to 14 CLE credits (including ethics) at panels on numerous topics relevant to IP practitioners.  The keynote address will be on a topic the IPKat knows is near and dear to many readers: that intriguing animal known as the Non-Practising Entity.

Other sessions include:
  • Copyright Piracy and The Cloud
  • Employment Law and IP
  • Cyber Security
  • The Doman Name:  A Practical Update
  • Generating Additional Revenue through Licensing Programs
  • Social Media and Intellectual Property.  Should you be Doing More?
  • Global trademark and trade secret enforcement
  • The Ins and Outs of Trademark Licensing
  • IP and Information/Corporate Governance
  • Intellectual Property in an International Landscape: What's Your Risk?
  • This Kat will be showing her whiskers as a panelist in a session on Software Licensing Disputes during the first day of the Forum.  [Merpel will be dressed in her Kat finest.  The University Club has a strict dress code that requires male guests to wear jackets, dress shirts and ties, and female guests to wear clothing meeting similar standards (tailored clothing that otherwise conforms to this rule).]

    The IPKat has two FREE SPOTS to give away in a Kat contest.  The two winners of this contest will be the readers who submit the best limericks (in this Kat's opinion) related to software licensing that starts with the line “A leopard with plenty of spots….” 
    Submissions are due no later than this Friday, October 11 and can be sent to the IPKat at IPKatLimerickContest@gmail.com.  The IPKat will publish some of the best limericks and announce the winners on Monday, October 14.  While the IPKat appreciates poetic license, the winning limericks must abide by the rules for writing a true limerick.
    IP Trademark, Copyright & Licensing Counsel Forum host ALM has graciously offered any readers who would like to attend, but do not wish to enter the contest or who do not win, a 50% discount off the regular registration rate.  Let them know the IPKat sent you by registering with discount code IPKATVIP. 
    This Kat would love to meet Kat readers at the Forum.  Come and say hello!
