Do you really LOVE copyright? A Katcontest for younger copyright enthusiasts
This blogger will be speaking at the forthcoming Copyright and Technology Conference, that will be held in London on 17 October 2013.
The organisers have just informed her that she can invite one lucky person to attend the conference for free, instead of having to pay the £249 registration fee.
Mindful of the fact that younger copyright enthusiasts with limited financial support from their own organisations might find ... let's just say "challenging" to attend these sorts of events, this blogger has decided to donate her own complimentary ticket to the creative soul who will complete the following stanza in the most original (not just for the sake of copyright protection!) and amusing (at least according to peculiarly feline sense of humour) way:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Copyright is ...
This is not the only good news. Fellow speaker Emma Linklater, a talented PhD researcher at this blogger's former institution (the European University Institute) has also agreed to donate her own complimentary ticket.
This means that two lucky copyright enthusiasts will be able to attend this great event.
The only requirement to enter the Katcontest is to be under 33 years old (this means that oldest entrants were born in 1980).
Entries must be submitted by Thursday 3 October 11 pm GMT (tomorrow) to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IPKat will publish the best entries, so do please also provide an irrevocable gratuitous and non-exclusive licence when submitting your original work.
