EIPIN Conference organized by the CEIPI in Strasbourg at the European Court of Human Rights on the topic: "Human Rights and Intellectual Property: From Concepts to Practice"
From April 5 to 7, 2013, the CEIPI will organize and host the Congress of the European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN). To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the entry into force of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Congress, entitled "Human Rights and Intellectual Property: From Concepts to Practice", will attempt to take stocks of the emerged, often complex, relationship between the two areas of law, which are now firmly rooted in the European and international legal order. The conference is being organized under the academic direction of Christophe Geiger, Associate Professor, Director General and Director of the Research Department of CEIPI.
The conference will explore practical and doctrinal implications of human rights on intellectual property law and case-law. In particular, the conference will scrutinize issues related to the role of human rights in development of the balanced intellectual property legal framework, practices of European courts and quasi-judicial bodies, and it will attempt to identify legal significance of different human rights for exercise of intellectual property rights. This noteworthy event will feature an array of intellectual property and human rights experts and practitioners of world renown.
