Go to Harmsworth to keep designs out of Harm's Way

An Intellectual Property Mediation Theatre is being held on Wednesday 17 October 2007 at 4.30 for 5.00-7.00pm, followed by networking and drinks until 8.00pm. The venue is the London pad of the UK Intellectual Property Office, Harmsworth House, 13-15 Bouverie Street, London EC4Y 8DP. According to the publicity material,
"This session is designed for those who are interested in the mediation process and would like to see how it operates in practice, particularly in light of the Gowers Report on Intellectual Property [which, says the IPKat, says practically NOTHING USEFUL AT ALL about designs, but backs better use of means other than litigation for resolving disputes]. It is also intended for those who wish to learn about mediation as a real alternative to litigation in dispute resolution".
Driving this event are leading mediation services provider CEDR and the increasingly useful ACID (Anti Copying In Design), the highly active UK IP trade organisation for designers and manufacturers. ACID-accredited law firm Hammonds is buying the drinks, so the fee of £30 plus £5.25 VAT is being levied to cover the overheads (what's that, asks Merpel: umbrellas, parasols, fake Burberry caps?)

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.
