CIPIL Spring Conference 2013: What's New in IP Remedies?

This year the CIPIL Spring Conference is focusing on the law relating to IP remedies – disclosure orders, seizure, injunctions, declarations, delivery up, damages, accounts - which is currently in a state of flux. In part this is because of the impact of the EC law, and in part because the modes of infringement have altered in the Internet environment, demanding new remedial responses.

The aim of this conference is to explore these recent developments, examining UK jurisprudence in relation to the Enforcement Directive and taking a look at reactions across Europe. The afternoon session will focus, in particular, on the developments in relation to the Internet. We will finish with a discussion of developments in the US and International regimes – the ultimately unsuccessful ACTA being an instrument that was primarily about buttressing and developing remedies. By the end of the day, delegates should have a good understanding of recent developments and some sense of where the law is going.

Confirmed Speakers: Daniel Alexander QC (8 New Square), Henry Carr QC (11 South Square), Professor H. Tomás Gómez-Arostegui (Lewis & Clark Law School, Oregon), Professor Paul Heald (University of Illinois), Professor Phillip Johnson (University College Dublin), Professor Ansgar Ohly (University of Munich) and Jaani Riordan (Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre), Christopher Sharp (Herbert Smith Freehills LLP), Joel Smith (Herbert Smith Freehills LLP)and Professor Alain Strowel (University St Louis, Brussels) .
