The annual IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch is a friendly, informal and exciting event that welcomes anyone involved in IP publishing, editing, authoring and blogging, from all around the world. A brilliant creation of our own Jeremy Phillips (founding editor of JIPLP and creator of the IPKat), the Lunch is the perfect occasion to share experiences, ideas, projects and issues related to the world of IP publishing. Your background, experience, age or qualifications don't matter: if you write or blog about intellectual property, edit or publish IP journals, books, magazines or blogs, review IP research or have editorial board responsibilities, or if you are in any other way involved in related activities, you are welcome to join us for two hours of fruitful, engaging and interesting discussions with like-minded individuals.
The 2016 IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch will take place on Friday 25 November, from 12.30 pm to 2.30 pm (registration from 12.15 pm), at the London office of the law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards. The Lunch will begin with a keynote speech by the eclectic (not only an IP star, but also an excellent violinist, fencer and photographer) and knowledgeable Jaani Riordan (8 New Square), who will discuss hyperlinking in the aftermath of the CJEU's decision in GS Media, analysing the relevant implications for publishers. As always, the keynote speech will be followed by informal conversations and networking among the participants, facilitated by a delicious buffet lunch and drinks.
To register for the event, please visit our Eventbrite page.
Attendance is free and open to anyone involved in IP publishing as author, blogger, editor, editorial board member or publisher (as well as to anyone involved in related activities or contemplating a career change). If you have never attended the Lunch before, and wish to check your eligibility to attend, please contact Stefano Barazza via email. If you are new to IP publishing and don't know any of the other attendees, don't be shy - you will soon find yourself engaged in stimulating discussions with colleagues and future friends.
A heartfelt thank you to the law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards and Serena Tierney, for volunteering to host the event, to Romany Wilson, whose support in organising the Lunch is truly indispensable, and to Jaani Riordan, for accepting our invitation to deliver the keynote speech.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch!
