Forthcoming events

Thursday 8 March: BLACA (the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association) has a panel session on The Resale Royalty Right: Victory for the Artist or Industry's Nightmare? Panelists are Joanna Cave (DACS), Simon Stokes (Blake Lapthorn Tarlo Lyons) and Christopher Battiscombe (London Society of Art Dealers). The meeting is hosted by Berwin Leighton Paisner in their Adelaide House premises. Be there at 6.15pm. Non-members welcome (members can come, whether they are welcome or not ...).

Right: Henry Fuseli's The Nightmare is a nightmare for the art world no longer, since it is now in the public domain for all moral and economic purposes.

Tuesday 13 March: Copying Without Infringing - one day conference at the Cafe Royal, London. Details here. Excellent programme, great speakers and some really good places to have a coffee afterwards.

Left: introducing Copycat, the world's first surviving cloned cat.

Thursday 15 March: The Intellectual Property Institute is hosting a talk by Evie Kyriakides, who is coming all the way from Mars to speak on Fast-Moving Consumer Goods. Turn up at the London offices of law firm McDermott Will & Emery. Evie speaks at 5.00pm and is followed by refreshments. Let the IPI know you're coming first, though. Further details here.

Monday 19 March: another one-day conference at the Cafe Royal, Intellectual Property and Competition Law: the Complexities Demystified. Programme and booking details here. This programme has suddenly become much more exciting, now that Mr Justice Pumfrey has given his sparklingly exciting judgment in SanDisk v Sisvel, on which IPKat co-bloggie Jeremy will be saying some choice words.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
