Thursday Thingies

It’s a new week, which means only one thing: fresh Katfood! I promise that this Katfood will satisfy your taste buds...

Adding this Katfood to my diary
JETLaw’s 2019-2020 Annual Symposium, Vanderbilt University Law School
A theme that becomes more relevant everyday: Tech Influence. Join JETLaw on 20 February 2020 to talk about technology’s influence on our lives. The influence of technology on Government, courts and you, are addressed. Lawrence Lessig will deliver a keynote that promises to keep you on the edge of your chair. More information is available here.

Call for article submissions
Do you also sometimes get poetic about IP law? In celebration of the month of love, JIPLP launched a call for article submissions addressing IP issues as relating to the realm of love and passion. An example is IP controversies between dating apps and websites, e.g. the recent Tinder/Bumble feud over the swipe. More information about this lovely opportunity is available here.  

PhD opportunity
Will AI be writing songs? How does this affect the copyright ownership and enforcement in the music industry? Are these just some of the questions that keep you awake at night? If so, we have existing news for you!

Enquiries and applications must be submitted 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.
