Apart from being a celebration of a decade of thoroughly enjoyable and thankfully successful intellectual property law publishing, this conference marks the hand-over of its editorial functions. Founder editor Jeremy is stepping down and is passing the reins to three new editors: Eleonora Rosati (currently Deputy Editor), Stefano Barazza and Marius Schneider. This is the last time you will have the (mis)fortune of seeing Jeremy in action since it's his final public participation in any intellectual property event before he retires.
