Owning and controlling IP: another event, another competition

There's a conference coming up on 10 May under the title "Ownership and Control of IP Rights". With a London venue and a stellar cast, it should be fun. It's also a slightly historical event, being the first conference to carry the new "IPKat-approved" legend. Conference booking and programme details can be viewed here.

To mark this event, which carries 6 CPD points, the IPKat is running another competition. The prize, as usual, is complimentary entry and lunch (the regular fee is £495 + VAT). The rules are simple. Since Monday 26 April is World Intellectual Property Day 2010, the IPKat is looking for an Intellectual Property Anthem which we can all sing [subject to copyright clearance?asks Merpel] on the day itself.

The closing date for entries is Sunday 18 April. Please send your compositions to the IPKat here, stating clearly whether you might face dismissal if your name appears among the ranks of authors of the best published entries. Note: this competition is also open to employees of WIPO ...

  1. Due to the feline connection, how about adopting the old Siamese national anthem: Oh Wah Tan Ah, Siam?


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.
