AIPPI Milan Study Questions Workshop 2016
Tue 2 February 2016, 18:00 – 19:30 GMT
AIPPI has now announced its Study Questions that will be put to its Congress in Milan from 16th to 20th September 2016.
The Questions are as follows:
Patents - Added Matter: the standard for determining adequate support for amendments
Designs - Requirements for protection of designs (focus on role of functionality)
Copyright - Linking and making available on the Internet
General - Security interests over intellectual property
The questions and guidelines are available here.
The launch session will briefly introduce the Questions, before splitting into separate workshops on each question. The workshops will analyse, discuss the main points each Question raises for UK practitioners, consider proposals for harmonisation and reform, and plan the further preparation of the UK response.
Please register under the Question on which you wish to participate. If you cannot come on 2nd February, but would like to participate in work on the questions, please contact email@example.com.
This launch meeting is free and is open to members and non-members. Continued involvement after that will be limited to members, or those with pending applications for membership.
