Monday Miscellany

To get your week started, here's the latest update of IP news, events, and opportunities.

Thanks and all the best Cecilia! - The IPKat is sad to say farewell to Cecilia Sbrolli, who is stepping down from her role as GuestKat. An Italian IP enthusiast, Cecilia is currently a lawyer at the Brussels office of K&L Gates, mainly dealing with competition and commercial law issues. We thank Cecilia for all her work for and dedication to the blog and we look forward to collaborating with her in the future in some other capacity. Thanks Cecilia and all the best! 


On July 16th (11:00 EST/16:00 GMT) Managing IP and Incopro are hosting a free webinar on the topic of "Search Engines can do more to protect your intellectual property". The webinar will look in-depth at what actions search engines can take to help protect rights holder's IP, but more importantly what more can search engines do.

Join the webinar as the speakers - Simon Baggs (Incopro), Dan Glover (McCarthy Tetrault), Helen Saunders (Incopro), and Moderator Sanjana Kapila (Managing IP) - analyse:
  • What is happening online, with practical case study examples on issues affecting the pharma, sports, consumer product, motoring and electrical sectors
  • The case law that shows how search engines can be required to do more
  • What next steps brands can take to get more cooperation from search engines
The research conducted by Incopro and its legal network partners will be released in an upcoming white paper. More information and how to register for the webinar are available 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.
