Copying Without Infringing

Copying Without Infringing

This year's popular one-day Copying Without Infringing conference takes place in London on 13 March 2007. Organised by CLT, it addresses the vexed issue of how far a business can make use of another's IP rights before it finds itself liable for infringing them. Is it "fair dealing" or "fair stealing"? IPKat team member Jeremy will be chairing the day's activity.

Papers on this year's programme include

* "Experimental Use of Another's Patent - How Far Dare One Go?", by Bird & Bird partner Trevor Cook, who has recently written a monograph on this topic that was published by the IPI;

* "Thumbnails, Hotlinks, P2P and Blogging: Non-permitted Use of Copyright Works and the Internet", by King's College London scholar Tanya Aplin;

* "Can You Sell a Smell-alike Scent?" by Addleshaw Goddard partner Richard Kempner.
The IPKat will shortly be announcing a competition to go with this conference, the prize being complimentary admission (and a jolly good lunch). Full programme and booking form here.

Are you suggesting IPKat readers can be bribed with a free meal? Surely not...

A reward for one's honest toils, in competition with one's fellows, can't really be called a bribe - can it? In mitigation, the meal is free to the IPKat as well as to whoever gets to eat it ...
