"CIPA, The IP Federation and the IPO will be hosting awareness raising events for individuals and businesses to gain a better understanding the background of the consultation, the details of the various elements contained within it and how best to get your views across.The London event will take place on the from at the Allen & Overy Offices (Allen & Overy LLP, One Bishops Square, London, E1 6AD).
This will be an interactive event with a panel of experts discussing the key elements and generating discussion from the audience. We are pleased that Mr Justice Birss, Kevin Mooney and Alan Johnson have all been confirmed for the panel. A live and interactive webinar is also planned. Details of how to join on-line will be issued shortly.
The AmeriKat is certain that this will be an entertaining and passionate discussion. She hopes that in relation to Part B of the consultation document questions such as "How does one go about accurately valuing an action?" and "What happens if there is a dispute about the value of the action?" are thoroughly addressed. Perhaps applications, like the one recently made in Big Bus (see Merpel report here), could assist the parties in determining the value of the action. For those readers unable to attend the event (or watch via webcast), the IPKat will provide a summary of the proceedings following the event.If you would like to attend the event please RSVP to Tina Alexander (Allen & Overy) at Tina.Alexander@allenovery.com
