Mark your calendars: Design Law Reform Conference in Singapore!

Note down on your agendas: on September 19th and 20th, the National University of Singapore will host the Design Law Reform Conference at its Bukit Timah Campus.

With a fantastic faculty of presenters, this conference will discuss the current state of play of design protection at national and international levels. The programme is divided into six sessions, among others, Challenges of Designs embodying a technical function, discussing functionality exclusions,  protection of spare parts, utility models and of modular products; and The relationship between registered and unregistered rights discussing the role of unregistered rights, grace periods and claiming rights. During the conference there will also be  the launch of the book International Intellectual Property and the ASEAN Way: Pathways to Interoperability by Elizabeth Siew-Kuan Ng and Graeme W. Austin.

The conference is also part of a larger research project focused on design protection.

The research papers will be published in a special issue of the Oxford Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice.

Design protection is an ever important aspect of IP, so don't miss out on a chance to learn more about global design protection and the future legal trends and legislative reforms.  

Convenors to the conference are: Associate Professor Elizabeth Siew-Kuan Ng, Professor Graeme Dinwoodie and David Stone, Research Fellow.

The full programme can be found here and registration can be done through this page.

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.
