European copyright reform: a meeting -- of minds?

Given their different backgrounds and cultures, it was not surprising
that Europeans found it so hard to reach consensus on a copyright code
The annual BLACA–IPI Seminar takes place on 14 October in the London office of law firm Bird & Bird.  The subject is European Copyright Reform.  Speakers will include Jonathan Griffiths (Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary, University of London) on "Reform of the three-step test", Paul Torremans (Professor of Intellectual Property Law, University of Nottingham) on the limitations of an EU approach to a copyright code, plus contributions from Mr Justice Arnold, Frances Lowe and Uma Suthersanen (on orphan works).

The cost is as follows: IPI and Blaca members £25; others £50.  Students go free.
To attend please email the IPI here and reserve your place.

The 1709 Blog is pleased to note that, after a long quiet summer, the Intellectual Property Institute is showing signs of renewed life.
