Bucerius IP Conference 2013

Detailed program is available now


Bucerius Law School’s Center for Transnational IP, Media and Technology Law and Policy is holding its second academic conference on October 11, 2013 at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg. This year’s conference proposes to tackle yet another critical topic in the field of Intellectual Property – the interrelation of innovation, competition and collaboration. A number of internationally well-known scholars and practitioners have agreed to speak and moderate the conference.

The shift away from purely exclusionary uses of IP to increasingly collaborative modes of doing business demand new perspectives on the intersection between IP and competition laws. The topics discussed include the contractual exploitation of patents in light of competition law, patent essential standards and FRAND terms, the coexistence between open and proprietary IP models, redefining the public domain as a positive space, private ordering in the trademark field and its impact on competition and transparency, confidential know-how as the basis for creating and disseminating new technologies, exhaustion in connection with online transmission of data, as well as related developments in the telecommunications and biotechnology areas.
