Forthcoming events and call for papers


On June 21, 2024, the Milan Bar Association  is organizing a conference on "IP and Ethics: Italian and French Experience" at the “Palazzo di Giustizia” in Milan. Here is the Programme. The event is being held in cooperation with the Paris Bar Association. This inaugural meeting will facilitate discussions of how IP lawyers in Italy and France handle issues such as conflicts of interest and professional secrecy. Conference registration: for France by e-mail to and for Italy here.

The SERCI Annual Congress for 2024 is set to take place at Texas A&M University in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, on September 6, and September 7, 2024. The event is organized by Prof. Glynn Lunney, with Prof. Keith Maskus from the University of Colorado Boulder as keynote speaker. For more information and updates, visit There is a Call for Papers: submissions to be presented at the congress (any topic that uses economic analysis to better understand any issue related to Copyright) can be emailed to  by June 30th, 2024.

On September 19, 2024, our PermaKat Prof. Eleonora Rosati will discuss the “Liability for AI-generated outputs under EU/UK Copyright Law” in a webinar organized by 4IP Council. The session will explore whether AI-generated outputs resembling existing works can be considered actionable reproductions rather than just plagiarism, and who would be liable, whether the user inputting prompts or the AI tool developers. It will also examine who may benefit from exceptions and limitations under copyright law and under what conditions these defences apply. You can register here.


The Media & Arts Law Review is seeking papers exploring the intersection of law, culture, and power in relation to Taylor Swift for inclusion in a Special Issue. You can find all the details in the Call for papers.  

Proposals are due by 28 June 2024, with final papers due by 16 September 2024.

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.
