The Annual Oxford International Intellectual Property Law Moot Competition
The Oxford Moot serves a very valuable purpose, both in encouraging students to further their studies in intellectual property law, and also in showcasing the research work of the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre.
The 2024 moot concerns Velocitas Shoes Ltd v No Limits plc  HCE 418. The issues in this shoe-based moot will comprise validity and infringement issues in relation to (1) a patent (in particular, novelty and ‘right to repair’) and (2) the new Erewhonian unregistered design right (in particular, exclusions from design protection and the nature and standards for infringement).
