|Professor Tanya Aplin from King’s College London is giving a lecture at BU’s EBC on April 26.|
Tanya Aplin, Professor of Intellectual Property Law at King’s College London, will give a public lecture on Thursday 26 April, entitled: “Confidential information as intellectual *property*?”.
In light of two recent Court of Appeal decisions - Veolia ES Nottinghamshire Ltd v Nottinghamshire County Council  EWCA Civ 1214 and Coogan v News Group Newspapers Ltd  EWCA Civ 48 - this lecture will tackle what Professor Finn has previously described as ‘the most sterile of debates’, to argue that it matters whether confidential information is characterised as property and that it should not be treated as such.
This is the third, and last of the annual Spring lectures organised by the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy & Management. It will take place on Thursday evening, 26 April at 18:00, in the Executive Business Centre, close to the Bournemouth main line railway station (89 Holdenhurst Road, BH8 8EB).
The lecture is free, but places are limited, and admission to the building closes at 18:15. If you wish to reserve a place, please contact Mandy Lenihan.
