Forthcoming events -- and a haiku competition

If you've not yet signed up for the Trade Marks in the Downturn seminar, you've still got two weeks to do so. This seminar, run by the IPKat weblog together with Hardwicke Building, has some great speakers lined up. 

Right: even when there's a downturn you can still be happy

IPKat team blogger Jeremy is in the chair and promises to do his best to keep the speaker on their toes.  The event takes place in Central London on Tuesday 17 February, 11am to 3pm, and it's a great bargain too: just £50 + VAT, inclusive of lunch and 3 CPD points.  further details are available here. The first five in-housers were given free admission and the Kat hears rumours that the next in-house trade mark applicant to apply might just gain complimentary admission too ...

Another event in the pipeline is the first-ever CLT one-day conference, "Intellectual Property in the Education Sector: meeting the challenges of changing times".  This event, also with IPKat team blogger Jeremy in the chair, takes place on Thursday 19 March, again in Central London.  You can read the programme, which has the booking arrangements, here

To commemorate this event the IPKat is holding another competition.  This time it's a return to the haiku: entrants are asked to compose a haiku in the traditional Japanese style, connecting the subjects of intellectual property and education.   There are two further conditions: (i) no references must be made to cats or Kats and (ii) there are to be absolutely no arguments as to what constitutes a haiku.  The deadline is Sunday 8 March, midnight (Greenwich Mean Time) and entries should be emailed to the IPKat here with the subject line "Educomp".  The winner gets free entry to the conference, and a chance to read his or her haiku out to the assembled masses who attend the event ...

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.
