World IP Day 2. This is just a reminder that this year's theme for World Intellectual Property Day, chosen by the World Intellectual Property Organization itself, is "A Global Passion", this being a celebration of innovation and creativity in the film industry. Via its dedicated World IP Day website, here, WIPO encourages everyone to mark the day in an appropriately festive manner. You can also visit the World IP Day Facebook page and follow events on Twitter using the #worldipday hashtag. Once you've exhausted these delightful prospects, if you are a film buff you can tackle Managing Intellectual Property magazine's World IP Day Movie Quiz, which you can find here. Merpel says she knew all the right answers really, but just couldn't quite remember them all at the time ...
Bucerius links with Hastings. The new summer programme at the Bucerius Law School, Hamburg, Germany, has just been announced. The subject is Transnational IP Law and Licensing and it takes place from 22 July 22 to 8 August 2014. Details can be obtained here. This year's event is a collaboration between the Bucerius Law School and UC Hastings, San Francisco, so not surprisingly it features faculty from both the US and Europe. According to Dana Beldiman (whom you can mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with all your questions):
"It is intended for young practitioners and upper division law students who have had some exposure to IP. The topics cover IP concepts from a comparative perspective, as relevant to licensing, as well as the legal and practical aspects of international licensing transactions, including relevant competition/anti-trust law. It concludes with a negotiation workshop, during which small groups of students negotiate the key terms of a technology licence agreement".
