I should first like to wish all my readers a Happy World Intellectual Property Day.
In June and July Liverpool will host the International Festival for Business. According to its website
"The International Festival for Business (IFB) 2014 is the largest global concentration of business events during 2014......... IFB 2014 is very ambitious. It is a key part of the government's target of rebalancing the economy and achieving its export and investment objectives."The blurb continues:
"A festival like this has never been held before. IFB 2014 isn’t a talking shop - it’s a chance for you to develop your business. We are placing an explicit focus on creating new international and domestic business-to-business relationships and commercial openings for small, medium and large UK companies."This is not just a business event. There is also to be a festival of culture embracing music, theatre, art and sport.
We think it is a great idea and we will support the project in any and every way we can. As intellectual property is the glue that holds together investment in branding, design, technology and the creative works we shall hold a workshop on the Intellectual Property Bill similar to the one we are holding in London on 19 May in conjunction with our good friends in the Intellectual Property Department of QualitySolicitors Jackson & Canter and other IP professionals in and around Liverpool. We also hope to run clinics, seminars on tax, media and entertainment and sports law, help for inventors, designers and performing artists, a roving publication, social media events - you name it we shall do it.
