As one might imagine, patent litigation is a topic which features prominently on the programme. Margot Froehlinger (European Commission) and Professor Sir Robin Jacob (Royal Courts of Justice and now University College London) are the speakers on "Towards an Enhanced Patent System in Europe", chaired by CIPA President Alasdair Poore, while topics such as disclosure (a.k.a. discovery) and enforcement in China are also on offer.

Now you can win without even going to court
The IPKat weblog is currently running a competition to mark this year's CIPA Congress, IP in the New Decade, which takes place in the Lancaster Hotel, London on 30 September and 1 October. The prize for this competition is complimentary registration to this premier event (the full registration fee for non-members of the Institute is £1,075 plus VAT, so this prize is quite worthwhile).
