AIPPI has now announced the Questions that will be put to the ExCo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 10th to 14th October 2015.
The Questions are as follows:
Q244: Inventorship of Multinational Inventions - led by Jan Vleck
Q245: Taking unfair advantage of trademarks: parasitism and free riding - led by Paul Harris
Q246: Exceptions and limitations to copyright protection for libraries, archives and education and research institutions - led by Ashley Roughton
Q247: Trade secrets: Overlap with restraint of trade, aspects of enforcement - led by Jonny Moss
The working guidelines for each Question will be available soon and will be posted here in due course.
The launch meeting 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 27th January, but would like to participate in work on the questions, please contact email@example.com.
The 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.
Members (including new members) who were 35 or younger on 1 January 2015 and who participate in the preparation of the Questions may wish to note that they are eligible for consideration for the annual AIPPI UK prize for the best contribution to a Question by an eligible member of the group. The prize is worth up to £3,000 in attendance, travel and accommodation fees for the AIPPI Congress, and £300 in book tokens.
