2010-05-23 | The 2010 ATRIP Congress – Stockholm

Individualism and Collectiveness in Intellectual Property Law

The Stockholm programme will work under a chapeau of Individualism and Collectiveness in Intellectual Property Law. This heading may allow us to embrace fundamental, eternal and yet very contemporary elements in IP Law that we deal with in our teaching and research. The strain gauge will be put on classic values embedded in the protection of human efforts and the creativeness of individuals, at the same time deploying the intrinsic phenomena of our times that lie in the enhancement of individual creativeness in a collective setting as well as the tendencies to build national, regional or global monopolies based on IP Rights. The respect for original ownership, the occasional need for collective management of IP Rights, the idiosyncrasies of co-ownership of rights and the ever present tension to be found in encounters between exploitation of IP Rights and Competition Law will offer an arena for the scientific programme of the 2010 ATRIP Congress.

The 2010 Congress will be organised in cooperation with the Law Faculty of Stockholm University and with the support of WIPO, the European Patent Office (EPO), the city of Stockholm and a few other, very dedicated, mainly local sponsors. The congress venue, Aula Magna, is situated at the Stockholm University campus, a few underground stations away from the very centre of the city.

Stockholm in the month of May will hopefully offer you a very hospitable and by all means agreeable environment. As May is part of the peak season for tourism and professional conferences, it is urgently recommended that you make your hotel reservation as early as possible.

I am looking forward very much to welcoming you in Stockholm!
