The IPKat will be attending the March Queen Mary Monthly Seminar, which is taking place next Thursday, 17 March, from 5.30pm till 7.00pm. The speaker is Angus Johnston of the University of Cambridge, who will be speaking on “Neither Rhyme nor Reason? Consistency and Coherence in Remedies for Breach of Confidence”. Angus’ wide range of interests, which include intellectual property law, European law, competition law and tort law, enable him to look at the “bigger picture” where intellectual property is concerned. The subject of his talk is of continuing importance, both in terms of the protection personal privacy and the protection, of commercial secrets.
