Book launch: Copyright and the CJEU

UCL’s Institute of Brand and Innovation Law (‘IBIL’) will host the launch of the new edition of PermaKat Eleonora Rosati’s book ‘Copyright and Court of Justice of the European Union’ published by Oxford University Press. The book is an attempt to find a fil rouge, some sort of rationale, underlying the CJEU’s action in the area of copyright. The goal is to provide readers with a sense of direction of EU copyright case law. In order to achieve this, an exercise of ‘tidying up’ and rationalizing the rulings issued so far is carried out. The launch will be chaired by The Rt. Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob and involve a panel discussion of certain of the book’s themes. More information about the book and the launch can be found here.

The panel will consider, among other, the following questions: what are the similarities and differences between EPO opposition proceedings and UPC central revocation actions? And what are the pros and cons of each? To what extent, for example, will the UPC take notice of EPO Board of Appeal decisions and adopt EPO practices, such as the ‘problem/solution’ approach to inventive step?

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.
