Call for papers: Ethics of Intellectual Property Rights

On 17 March 2017, CIPPM will host the first workshop of the 2017 New IP Lawyers Workshop Series “Ethics of Intellectual Property Rights: Challenges & Solutions”. The workshop is open to PhD students who explore the role of ethics in all areas of intellectual protection: copyright, industrial designs, trade marks, patents, trade secrets, and interfaces between different rights.

The workshop, organized by Viola Prifti, Executive Committee Member of New IP Lawyers and CIPPM Research Fellow, aims to encourage PhD students to discuss their work from an interdisciplinary perspective in order to understand all interests involved in the intellectual protection of innovations, the role of the current IP legal framework in innovation, and the need for reforms that can serve our society better.
