IP and Fashion conference

Following the success of last year's conference on the same subject, CLT is running a second event under the title "Intellectual Property in the Fashion Industry". It's scheduled for Thursday 20 September and it's going to be held at the Grange City Hotel, London. Speakers in this event - which is supported by the IPKat - include

* Robert Lands (Finers Stephens Innocent) on how to handle damage caused by celebrity endorsements that backfire

* Helen Newman, late of Kilpatrick & Stockton but now with Olswang, on the role of trade marks in protecting the identity of fashion designers and labels;

* Deirdre Kilroy (LK Shields, Dublin) on the relationship between fashion brand owners and retailers peddling own-brand products: is it warfare, or merely a rather agressive form of symbiosis?
Another feature of the programme is the case study and problem-solving workshop at the end, where participants sit around a table together and argue with each other as to whose legal advice and business strategy is the best - or the least bad. The conference brochure, with full details of the programme and booking arrangements, can be found here.

The IPKat will be running a competition associated with this conference, the prize being complimentary admission for the day's festivities (that's worth £495 plus VAT to anyone who might otherwise have paid to get in). Watch this weblog for further details.

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.
