A couple of reminders

We are only a month away from "Copying Without Infringing", the conference organised by CLT (full details available from the brochure here) and which takes place in Central London on Wednesday 26 November. If you've not already booked, you'd better do so pretty soon if you want to avoid disappointment.

Right: can you tell which is the original sheep and which is the copy? And does it infringe ...?

Apart from the outstanding speakers (plus team blogger Jeremy in the chair), there's also the small matter of the competition, for which the prize is 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. When this competition was announced, the IPKat forgot to add a closing date. Well, he's doing so now: all entries to be received by midnight (Greenwich Mean Time) next Sunday.

The Intellectual Property Institute (IPI), London, has organised an informal meeting for bright, dynamic young IP professionals and activists -- in short, the next generation of leaders in the IP community -- on Tuesday 28 October, from 5pm to 7pm (with the possibility of socialising even afterwards). If you’re interested, please turn up at The Old Nick, 20-22 Sandland Street, London, WC1R 4PZ (near Holborn and Chancery Lane tube stations), where some of the members of the Intellectual Property Institute Council will be in attendance.

Left: you're never too young to become involved with the IPI

You can find The Old Nick here. If you're thinking of turning up but haven't yet let Jeremy know, email him here to warn him. Another warning: everyone has to buy their own drinks! If you would have liked to attend but (i) can’t or (ii) would like to attend a similar event somewhere outside London if enough interest were expressed, email the IPI here and say so.

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.
