IP events

The IPKat brings news of two events from University of London colleges:

Bridgeman v Corel

On 3 May, Queen Mary is hosting a re-enactment of the 1999 legal challenge brought by The Bridgeman Art Library against Corel Corporation. This conference gathers together professionals and experts on IP and copyright to reassess the verdict and place the decision within a European legal framework, to judge whether the same decision would have been reached outside the USA. The scarily good array of speakers includes Marybeth Peter, the US Registrar of Copyrights and many noted European academics and practitioners. The cost is £50 and full details are available here.

Chinese IP

UCL and Kings College London are running a course in central London leading to a Certificate in Chinese Intellectual Property between 17 and 28 September. The course, to be conducted in English, is taught by experts in Chinese Intellectual Property law including leading practitioners from China and current and former members of the Chinese Judiciary and is under the supervision of Professor Sir Hugh Laddie and Professor David Llewelyn. The course will cover the new Chinese IP law and its enforcement. It is anticipated that the course will be of particular interest and benefit to in-house lawyers from companies which conduct or intend to conduct business in China and to European IP professionals who advise such companies.

Full details are available here.

  1. Can the IPKat recommend any good courses/conferences to get an overview of US patent law?


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.
