The International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property (ISHTIP) at the Tel Aviv University will held its 14th Annual Conference, which this year will focus on the theme IP and Migration – of people, information, technology, creativity and law. The conference is particularly interested in the process of IP and Migration: How do authors adjust to new cultural, economic and legal environments? Do the incumbent cultural, social and legal systems change as they respond to the migration of the creative people or their imported business practices? How do products and trademarks fit within a new environment? What happens when a foreign entity – being a colonizer, an investor or a consumer – meets and interacts with the locals? How do ideas travel across borders, cultures and across time? Here and here, for the the call for papers and more information. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 31st January.

The conference is hosted by the S. Horowitz Institute for IP, and the David Berg Institute for Law and History, both at TAU Law, and is supported by Pearle Cohen Law firm. The reception will take place on 19th June and conference from 20th to 21st June 2023. More information here.

IP and the Metaverse 

The panel organised by The UCL Institute of Brand & Innovation Law, as part of the Annual Brands Seminar, will focus on the debate concerning the topic of IP in the Metaverse. The event will be dedicated to the discussion of how the Metaverse is not just about games, but also about business and about the new economy in virtual products. The following questions will be considered: How well are our current IP protection schemes – which already protect ‘intangible’ assets – suited to the virtual Meta-age? Should IP law adapt to the Metaverse, or is it the Metaverse that must adapt? What are the main IP challenges and possible solutions? Where does infringement take place? Who can be sued? Which exceptions might apply?
The Rt. Hon. Sir Colin Birss, Lord Justice of Appeal and Deputy Head of Civil Justice, chairs the panel that involves the following speakers: 
·  Darya Firsava, Head of IP, Senior Counsel,
·  Dr Stephen Hughes, Lecturer at UCL’s Department of Science and Technology Studies
·  Dr Michaela MacDonald, Lecturer at School for Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Teaching Fellow at Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University London. 
The panel will be held both in person, at Bentham House in London and live streamed on 22nd February 2023, at 6 pm. It is possible to find more information and to register here.


Retromark: the conference is back! This year it will take place at 2pm on Tuesday 2nd May at the Moorgate offices of Simmons & Simmons in association with the IPKat. The keynote speech will be given by His Honour Judge Richard Hacon, Presiding Judge of the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, with the full agenda to be announced in the near future.
Tickets will be free with an optional charitable donation and are likely to sell out pretty quickly, so put a save the date in your diary and look out for more information in the coming weeks.

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.
