Harmonisation by stealth: conversation or soliloquy?

Harmonisation by stealth: "I never
saw it coming ..."
From Dr Smita Kheria (Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law, University of Edinburgh) comes news of a forthcoming seminar, the third and final one in the University's "Conversations on Copyright" series. This is actually a cooperative venture, jointly organised by the University of Edinburgh, the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde.

Star attraction is Professor Lionel Bently (Herchel Smith Professor of Intellectual Property law, Cambridge; Director of CIPIL), who will be speaking on the topic "Harmonization by Stealth? The ECJ and European Copyright Law". Smita hopes that this will be of interest to copyright enthusiasts located in and around Scotland. Its appeal is somewhat broader, so this blog hopes to pick up some of the conversation that Lionel will be having with himself and others.

The event takes place next Thursday, 22 March, from 5.30-7pm at Lecture Theatre 183, Old College Building, University of Edinburgh. It's free but, if you want to attend, do email Julie Fyffe first at j.fyffe@ed.ac.uk to let her know.
