Copyright, technology and a contest!

[If you are also an IPKat reader, I apologise for the cross-posting ]

Copyright and Technology ...
On 1 October 2014 the beautiful London offices of Reed Smith LLP will host the 1-day Copyright and Technology conference, which promises to be very engaging. Incidentally, also I will be there as a moderator in the panel asking whether internet service providers should be copyright cops (this will also feature fellow blogger Asim, while John will be in the session on private copying). 

1709 Blog friend and organiser Bill Rosenblatt wishes to let our readers know that there is a special discount available for them. Those who wish to register have simply to select the relevant option in the registration form.

This is not the only good news, as I have a complimentary ticket (worth £239) to award to the winner of a new contest reserved to full time students/trainees/apprentices. The background idea is that these deserving copyright enthusiasts might often struggle to find a sponsor to attend these sorts of professional events.

... or
Copyright and Technology?
The competition requires aspiring entrants to create an artistic workeg a photograph or (if you find it easier) a work of architecture, that illustrates in the best/most humourous/saddest/etc (it all depends on your perspective!) the relationship between copyright and technology.

Once you are happy with your "own intellectual creation", email it to katcontest1@gmail.com, but do so by Monday 8 September 11 pm GMT.

The IPKat will publish the best entries, so do please also provide an irrevocable gratuitous and non-exclusive licence when submitting your work.

Good luck!
