Enforcement of IP Rights: our next JIPLP-GRUR London seminar

In a harmonised Europe, IP enforcement depends more
on consistency in the application of rights and remedies
than in the character and attributes of the enforcers ...
This year's JIPLP-GRUR Int London seminar takes place on Tuesday 8 September.  The subject is the impact of the EU's Intellectual Property Enforcement Directive (Directive 2004/48) on national litigation. The venue is the London office of law firm Taylor Wessing LLP (here).

The two speakers are London-based barrister Michael Edenborough QC (Serle Court) and Hamburg-based lawyer Wiebke Baars (Taylor Wessing), with JIPLP editor Jeremy Phillips in the chair.  A panel discussion will take place following the presentation of the two papers, led by Anna Carboni (partner, Redd solicitors and an Appointed Person to hear trade mark appeals), Paul Stevens (Olswang CEO and former head of litigation, Olswang LLP) and Mark Owen (Taylor Wessing).  Anna and Paul are both members of the JIPLP editorial board.

The panel-led discussion will be followed by questions and comments from the floor and a reception.

Registration commences at 2.30 pm for a 3.00 pm start. The formal proceedings should be concluded by 6 pm and the reception will finish by 7 pm.

Admission is free and it is believed that there will be some CPD credit.

If you'd like to attend, please email Jeremy Phillips at jjip@btinternet.com with the subject line "Enforcement".
