Unification of European Copyright: coming soon ...

They forgot to book an executive bedroom ...
Our friends at the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association (BLACA) have been busy again: they are participating in a joint seminar with the Bangor Law School on Friday 20 November, the topic being "The Unification of European Copyright".

There's a 5 pm start and a 7 pm reception. Between those two points you can listen to words of wisdom from Fidelma Macken SC (former judge of the CJEU and retired judge of the Supreme Court of Ireland; now with Brick Court Chambers, London) and Professor Antoon Quaedvlieg (Law Faculty, Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands).

4-star accommodation will be available in the University’s Management Centre (20 bedrooms have been provisionally reserved. Prices range from £74.50 for a double room and, from £89.50 for an executive bedroom). To book a bedroom in the Management Centre, please mail Ffion Lisk (Events Coordinator) at f.lisk@bangor.ac.uk (Telephone: + 44 (0)1248 - 365912), quoting ‘ Law School/BLACA Copyright Seminar'.

Pre-registration is required for this seminar. If you wish to attend, please confirm this by Friday 13 November to Polly Taylor (BLACA) at polly.taylor@blplaw.com, copying Mark Hyland (Bangor Law School) at m.hyland@bangor.ac.uk in the same e-mail.

This event is unusual in that it's the only one this blogger has ever seen in which details of the sleeping arrangements occupy more space in the publicity than details of the seminar topic.
