Copying Without Infringing

Some unkind people have commented from time to time on the quality (if that be the word) of the suit that IPKat team member Jeremy wears for work. It may look a little shabby but Jeremy has been wearing it since the previous century and it has seen a lot of action in the meantime. Those who criticise the component parts of the IPKat team for lack of sartorial elegance should take note, though. Jeremy has a new suit. It's dark grey, or possibly light black, and it will be making its debut at the Copying Without Infringing conference on Wednesday (formerly Thursday) 26 November. If you've not yet booked but plan to do so, or if you are merely curious to see Jeremy wearing a suit that does not look as though it came from an Oxfam Shop, details of the conference can be found here.

One person who will definitely get the chance to see Jeremy's new suit is the winner of the "Best IP Advice" competition, whose name will be announced this Sunday, 9 November, together with some of the best entries.

  1. Isn't 26 November a Wednesday?
    Easily Confused of North East England

  2. Dear easily confused
    you're quite right and I've amended the text accordingly. As an editor of periodicals that are prepared several months ahead of their cover dates, I've been "living" in 2009 for a couple of months now. I'm afraid it was my 2009 diary that I consulted when I checked the day.

  3. What lovers of fashion and the ECJ, a unique subset, will surely wish to know is whether the suit will be accessorised with any aesthetically complementary items.


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.
