Forthcoming events

Now here are a couple of events you may wish to note. The first is the Domains, Domain Disputes and Brands Conference 2008, organised by CLT and to be held in London on Wednesday 15 May 2008. This programme is conceived by the IPKat's friend, fellow-blogger and Solo IP activist Shireen Smith (Azrights solicitors), who incidentally is chairing the day and doing some of the serious speaking too. Topics covered include

* an introduction to trade marks and online branding;
* internet IP management - the proactive approach;
* valuing domain names - if you can't recover a domain name through dispute resolution, what will it cost to buy it?
* .uk and .eu dispute resolution;
* domain name recovery through litigation.

The all-star cast for the day includes the evergreen veteran Tony Willoughby (Rouse Legal), Olswang's rising star Joel Vertes and live-wire controversialist Jim Davies (Bell Dening). For further details read on, here.

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.
