"Are moral rights human rights?": come and find out!

"Never mind the eggs,
where are the canapes?"
Blaca, formerly known as the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association, is exceptionally delighted to announce a special joint meeting with the IPKat on Wednesday 12 February to examine the question "Are moral rights human rights?" Now, we Kats know the answer to this as well as other questions, but we are happy to let others have their say too.

The two principal speakers are our own dear Eleonora Rosati, who is far too well known to say anything about here, together with Graham Smith -- author, IP partner at the London office of Bird & Bird LLP, author of the Cyberleagle blog and generally very nice and much appreciated soul.

The meeting will be hosted by Bird & Bird at its offices at 15 Fetter Lane, London. Admission will be from 5:00 o'clock, with the seminar beginning at 5:30 pm. The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception, kindly hosted by Bird & Bird. In the chair is Sir Colin Birss [the IP judge who nearly rhymes with "purrs", notes Merpel].

In keeping with time-honoured IPKat custom and with the kind cooperation of Blaca, admission is free. Space is limited, so be sure to book now!
