"Win the game, or lose the plot?"

Messrs Richards and Jagger, carefully restored to their
pristine condition thanks to Botox.  Their composing
methods, as described in Keith Richards' autobiography
Life, were the subject of close scrutiny at the seminar
"Win the game, or lose the plot?", Wednesday's seminar on plots, themes, formats and other content which may --or may not -- be IP-protected, provided a thought-provoking agenda for the lively group of intellectual property owners, advisers and enthusiasts who attended it. Masterminded by the IPKat weblog team (who provided three of the participants) and hosted by Lincoln's Inn barristers Hardwicke (who provided the delicious lunch), the seminar was treated to a variety of topics which, in the form of PowerPoints, can be shared with all the IPKat's readers.

 While reading the PowerPoints for an event you didn't attend is never an easy task, these presentations do provide some useful reference materials and some handy bullets which, no doubt, the speakers can be persuaded to embellish.  The cast of speakers, chaired by IPKat team member Jeremy, together with their topics and links to their PowerPoints, runs as follows:
"Fact and fiction: recent UK case law on protecting plots" (Mark Engleman, Hardwicke), here

"Protecting computer games and business programs: is it possible?" (Shireen Permohamed, Harbottle & Lewis), here

"Music themes" (Nick Kounoupias, DMH Stallard), here

"Plots, themes and formats -— a US overview" (Annsley Merelle Ward, Collyer Bristow), here

"How do other countries handle these problems?" (Rebecca Dimaridis, Jeffrey Greeen Russell), here

"If copyright won’t provide protection, what of other IP rights?" (Birgit Clark, Berwin Leighton Paisner), here

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.
