The UK Government is committed to joining The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). If this goes ahead, IP practitioners need to understand the IP provisions of the CPTPP and what they are likely to mean in practice. AIPPI UK in conjunction with the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre is very happy to invite you to a webinar which will provide an overview of the agreement followed by a series of brief summaries of its implications for each of the key rights. There will be a short opportunity for questions at the end.

The speakers are as follows:

  • Professor Kim Weatherall, University of Sydney (background and aims of the CPTPP and a general overview of the IP Chapter)
  • Dr John Liddicoat, University of Cambridge (patents)
  • Dr Emily Hudson, King's College London (copyright)
  • Professor William Van Caenegem, University of Bond (GIs)
  • Professor Robert Burrell, University of Oxford & University of Melbourne (trade marks)

As a change to our normal timing, to accommodate time zones, this will be a lunchtime talk from 12-1pm on 29 July 2021.

The webinar login details will be sent to you before the event, via Eventbrite, to the email address registered for the attendee.
