Copying Without Infringing: new competition

Wednesday 26 November is "Copying Without Infringing" Day. That's when the conference of that name takes place in London, organised by CLT (full details available from the brochure here).

Right: this old copying machine worked so slowly that, by the time you finished copying, the copyright had expired ...

Bookings for this event reached break-even point within a week of the launch date, which suggests that there will be a big attendance this time round. Speakers include
* Legendary design law expert, patent commentator and humourist David Musker, who asks whether the law on product and package design protection is simply too complex to understand and apply;

* Giles Crown (Lewis Silkin) will be giving an advertiser's view on comparative ads and the ECJ's latest ruling, while Dan Smith (Wragge & Co) speakers for brand owners and Olswang's Joel Vertes looks at the issues involving balance between consumers' interests and those of IP owners;

* Perspectives from art-law expert Dan McClean (Withers) on the transformative use of existing art works and from barrister Gwilym Harbottle (Hogarth Chambers) on literary plagiarism and the Raj Persaud episode.
The IPKat is running another competition, the prize on offer being complimentary admission to the conference (normally £495 plus VAT). The competition this time is this: in 20 words or less, tell us "What is the best of intellectual property advice I ever heard?" Please head your emails "Best IP Advice" and send them here. As usual, the best entries will be published on this blog together the author's name -- unless anonymity is requested.

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.
