IP Law Café

IP Law Café

We are pleased to announce the next event of the IP Law Café at the University of LImerick. Designed for practitioners, business people, academics and anyone who has to deal with IP issues on a daily basis or is just curious about the role Intellectual Property plays in the modern commercial world, the Café is a series of afternoon engagements focussed around a specific topic with input from a recognised expert in the field. It is then followed by lively discussion among all the participants providing for networking, peer learning and development in the crucial area of Intellectual Property.  This month will focus on developing aspects of the tort of passing off - character merchandising, product endorsement, reverse passing off and the protection of collective interests.
