Event Information

To mark the release of our annual Trade Marks, Designs & Copyright Review of the Year publications, you’re invited to join us for an in-person seminar on Tuesday 14 March 2023.

Our expert lawyers will look back at some of the most influential IP rights cases of 2022 and discuss some of the recent developments in trade marks, domain names, passing off, designs, copyright and database rights.

The topics and cases discussed will, amongst others, include:

  • copyright in fictional characters following the Only Fools case;
  • an update on the diverging approaches to copyright subsistence under UK and EU law following the WaterRower case;
  • the UK’s proposed text and data mining exception, and its potential effect on AI;
  • the outcomes of this year’s bad faith claims, including the further developments in SkyKick
  • an overview of a number of cases involving the acquiescence defence and in what circumstances this could be successful.

We hope to see you there. Register your interest here.
