Copying Without Infringing again

The brochure is now available for the Copying Without Infringing Conference, which is being held in London on 26 November. The panel of speakers for the day is very impressive; this year's line-up includes
* Anna Carboni, solicitor-turned-barrister and now an Appointed Person in appeals against the UK-IPO's trade mark decisions;

* Ben Challis, a music law specialist and the man behind the media copyright and media arrangements for the Glastonbury Festival;

* David Stone, a partner in the London office of Howrey and a dedicated design right enthusiast;

* Trevor Cook, partner at Bird & Bird and a highly respected elder statesman in the IP field;

* Ian Karet, partner at Linklaters and a mercurial public speaker on any issue relating to patent rights.
Topics discussed include music sampling as theft or merely cultural evolution; literary plagiarism and the Raj Persaud episode; researching and experimenting around other people's patent rights and the question whether design law is now too complex for anyone to understand it.

IPKat team blogger Jeremy will be in the chair. Watch this space for details of the next IPKat competition, for which complimentary admission (worth £495 plus VAT) is the first ... and only ...prize.

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.
