As announced on this blog a couple of weeks ago, the IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch 2016 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 brief keynote speech will be delivered by the knowledgeable and brilliant 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. The Lunch will continue with a buffet and the usual, friendly and inspiring, networking among the participants. We already have a significant number of attendees, but we hope that, if you are involved in writing, editing or publishing in the world of IP, you will consider joining us. It doesn't matter whether you are a blogger, author, reviewer, editor, publisher or simply someone who is considering a career in this field: if you love building and sharing IP knowledge, there is a place for you at the Lunch!
To register for the event, please visit our Eventbrite page. Attendance is, of course, free. 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.
Please note that this event is not sponsored or organised by OUP or JIPLP - it belongs to our community of IP researchers and enthusiasts. Its success lies in the hands of each of us and in our willingness to share our own experiences and ideas. This event is made possible by the generosity of many people, in primis Serena Tierney and the law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards, Romany Wilson, Jaani Riordan and, of course, Jeremy Phillips, who created this wonderful event and brought us all together .
We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch!
