Event: Copyright History talk by Prof. Hector MacQueen (NEW DATE)

Please note: The talk will take place on Tuesday, 10th of February. The venue remains the same and please join us for the social gathering after the lecture.

We are happy to announce an event organised by Professor Mira Sundara Rajan on Tuesday, 10th of February. Professor Hector MacQueen will be visiting the “Intellectual Property & the Digital Economy” LL.M. and give a talk about Copyright history. Professor of Private Law at Edinburgh University, he is currently appointed to his second term as a Scottish Law Commissioner. He also serves as a member of the Programme Advisory Council for the CREATe research centre (you may view Professor MacQueen’s biography here). Please note that the CREATe will be hosting a conference on copyright history with leading scholars in this field, at the end of March (more information will follow soon). Therefore Professor MacQueen’s lecture will be an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with this fascinating and challenging subject-matter, and delve into the murky past of copyright law!

The talk will be held from 1pm to 3pm in Room 204 of the Sir Alexander Stone Building.

Please join us also for a social gathering at The left bank after the talk!

And finally a short note on behalf of the IP Society – we, the current board members, want to thank the founders and first members of the society for their initiative and work. We are looking forward to inspiring and enriching months!
