IP IN THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT

We are delighted to invite you to our online conference: ‘IP in the Digital Environment’, to be held on Thursday 3 December 2020, from 14:30-16:30 CET.

The keynote address, entitled ‘Website-Blocking Injunctions and Streaming Server-Blocking Injunctions: The State of the Art’, will be delivered by Sir Richard Arnold, Lord Justice of Appeal at the Court of Appeal of England and Wales.

Other speakers will include (in alphabetical order): Karin Cederlund (Sandart & Partners) and Stefan Johansson (Patent and Market Court), who will discuss ‘Website blocking from the Swedish perspective’; and Eleonora Rosati (Stockholm University), who will address the topic of ‘Roasting the host: from the safe harbour to the direct liability of platforms in IP cases’.

This event will provide an excellent forum to analyse the latest developments and case law in the field of online IP enforcement, including with regard to injunctions against online intermediaries and the direct liability of such intermediaries, as well as in light of recent legislative developments (e.g. EU Copyright Directive 2019/790) .
