WIPO focuses on non-infringements

A World Intellectual Property Organization press release, entitled "Seminar Examines Opportunities and Challenges of Legitimate Distribution of Copyright Works Online in Asia-Pacific Region", announces a forthcoming seminar this Tuesday, 10 July. The title somewhat bemused the poor, puzzled IPKat, who has got so used to discussions and initiatives to deal with illegitimate distribution that he'd quite forgotten about all those problems posed by legitimate trade. Merpel says, aren't they the problems that competition lawyers always get so excited about? For further details of the seminar click here.

And while we're on the subject of WIPO, another press release announces "Director General of WIPO and President of Bulgaria Highlight the Economic Importance of Creative Industries". Well, that's good news. If those two luminaries hadn't taken the initiative in highlighting the economic importance of creative industries, there was always that risk that some of us might not have spotted it...

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.
