IP in the Digital Environment

On the 28 September 2012 Graham Smith (Bird & Bird) will be chairing a new Lexis Nexis conference titled IP in the Digital Environment. We already have the event on our sidebar - but confirmed speakers have now been announced, and they include: Mark Owen (Harbottle & Lewis LLP) on 'The landscape of intellectual property enforcement in the digital environment', Tony Ballard (also Harbottle & Lewis) on 'Copyright in the online domain', Steve Holmes (Baker & McKenzie) on 'Challenges and opportunities for new media and new business models', Guy Tritton (Hogarth Chambers) on 'Dealing with cross-border IP infringement', Michael Silverleaf QC (11 South Square) on the liabilities and immunities of intermediaries, Simon Baggs (Wiggins LLP) on website blocking and other injunctive measures, Larry Cohen (Latham & Watkins LLP) on 'The Challenge of digital enforcement - the international perspective, and Francis Davey on the future of intellectual property law in the digital age.

The changing and expanding digital environment continues to provide both challenges and opportunities in the enforcement and protection of intellectual property - and striking a balance between the rights of content owners and the societal benefits of new technology. These issue has come to the forefront following the widespread adoption of Wi-Fi facilities, the judicial review of the Digital Economy Act and the Hargreaves Report - and the multi jurisdictional nature of new media. This conference will look at these topics is detail and 

  • Should IP protection extend to cloud based service providers and bloggers?
  • Where do infringing acts actually occur for the purpose of establishing jurisdiction and applicable law?
  • Can a fair balance be struck between the rights of ISPs and copyright owners in the event of website blocking?
  • How can UK businesses be better protected against global infringement of their IP
