resolution service motto
Eleonora's imaginative and informative Post-Fordham Catch-Up event, in which this weblog's resident copyright enthusiast will be reviewing the latest opinions of judges, scholars, copyright giants and practitioners in some of that subject's most keenly-contested areas. If you haven't yet signed up, do take this chance to do so since spaces are limited -- and if you can't make 6 May (for that is the date), but would have liked to attend, let Eleonora know. If there's enough interest she may be able to run another one.

IP Draughts, in a blogpost that really is authored by Mark Anderson this time, reflects on the old argument about whether information is property in the light of a new Court of Appeal, England and Wales, ruling. Finally, the jiplp weblog features the attractions of the April issue of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice, together with the full text of fellow Kat Neil's editorial on the provocative topic of whether intellectual property theories are worth the effort.
