Wednesday Whimsies

This Kat is hoping to absorb knowledge by osmosis
As many parts of the world slowly reopen, one can still enjoy IP-related events from the comfort of home.


The third event in FIDE and TIPSA's #GlobalDigitalEncounters series on the future of Intellectual Property in a post-crisis world will take place from 3-4pm BST this Thursday, 18 June on the topic of 'International IP and Access to Pandemic Treatments'. Moderated by Prof. Laurent Manderieux (Bocconi University), the speakers are Prof. Rochelle Dreyfuss (NYU) and Prof. Henning Grosse Ruse-Khan (University of Cambridge). Further information and registration is available here.

If you missed the first and second #GlobalDigitalEncounters, FIDE has made recordings of the events available on its website here.


Readers who are following the implementation of Articles 18-22 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive 2019/790 may be interested in the European Copyright Society's opinion on the matter, as reported and summarised by CREATe (University of Glasgow) here. Other ECS opinions are also available here.

Finally, congratulations are in order for PermaKat Eleonora Rosati on being named on WIPR's 2020 list of Influential Women in IP, "based on nominations from readers across the globe on who they regard as women in law who play a vital role in advancing the IP industry and challenging the existing status quo," including recognition of her work here at the IPKat.

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.
