AIPPI 2021 Study Questions published - Call for working group members/leaders is open
AIPPI 2021 Study Guidelines have been published and are available on the "Statutes & Other Materials" section of the website. Topics this year are the following:
- Patents: Inventiveness and sufficiency of disclosure in AI inventions
- Trademarks: Registrability of trade marks against public order or morality
- Copyright: Industrial Designs and the Role of Prior Art
- General: Reasonable awareness in compensation for infringement of IP rights
The Finnish AIPPI Group is currently forming national working groups to draft responses to the Study Questions. AIPPI members and all other interested parties are welcome to join the working groups by sending an email to email@example.com on Monday 1 February 2021 at the latest. Please state in your email which working group(s) you would like to join and whether you would like to join as a working group member or as a group leader. AIPPI membership is not required to participate.
Participation in the national working groups is one of the most rewarding and important ways to participate in AIPPI's activities. It is also a great way to maintain and develop professional skills and meet like-minded people. For non-members, it is also a good way to get to know AIPPI better.
