Webinar - Plausibility: from herbicides to insecticides and beyond (30 May 2024)

On 30 May 2024 the 4iP Council is hosting a webinar with Dheemanth Vangimalla and Sir Robin Jacob (chaired by Axel Ferrazzini) on the topic of  "plausibility”, which is an evidential requirement relating to whether a patent’s specification demonstrates that the claimed invention's purported technical contribution is achievable. In this webinar, Sir Robin and Dheemanth will explore the requirement’s origins, how it has been applied by EPO and the English courts in recent years, and what they envisage for the requirement’s future.

Webinar - The "Taylor’s Version Strategy" or re-recording music albums: (legally) possible in EU too? (13 June 2024)

On 13 June 2024 the 4iP Council is hosting another very interesting webinar with Dr. Maria Daphne Papadopoulou and Dr Claudia Tapia focussing on the legal grounds that made it possible for Taylor Swift to effectively re-record her albums.

They will also examine whether this would be also legally possible in EU. Copyright, licensing, and commercial transactions form an exciting world, and this case confirms it. To sign up, click 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.
