* IP Key and CEIPI Deliver Training to Chinese Judges in Europe
The training is part of a commitment between the EU and China that was emphasised in the memorandum of understanding that was signed during the 10 year anniversary of the EU-China IP dialogue in 2015. It brings together 20 Chinese judges from IP specialised courts and aims at strengthening Chinese judge’s knowledge and skills on intellectual property rights adjudication through peer-to-peer exchanges with experienced European IP judges.
The training is organised by IP Key with the Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) of the University of Strasbourg and will host contributions from specialised judges of national EU IP courts as well as senior academics and practitioners, addressing cross-subject procedural issues in the adjudication of IP disputes. For the full programme please visit the IP Key website.
Past activity with the LAC includes judges forum in Shanghai in 2016 and study visit to Europe in 2015.
IP Key is co-financed by the European Union and the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) under the framework of the new EU- China cooperation. It is implemented by the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) in partnership with the European Patent Office (EPO). For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
* CopyrightUser.org: Going for a Song – Copyright Guidance for Music Writers and ComposersA new copyright education resource is available on CopyrightUser.org: Going for a Song. It offers authoritative and accessible sector-specific copyright guidance for music writers and composers. It is based around the video, Going for a Song, which tells the story of Tina and Ben, a (fictional) music composer and a lyricist who create an original song and discuss how to market it.

Going for a Song was funded by CREATe and produced in collaboration with the global production music library Audio Network. The resource was publicly launched in Glasgow on 8th March 2017 at the CREATe Public Lecture ‘Stop Me If You Think That You’ve Heard This One Before: plagiarism in music copyright’ by Dr Simon Anderson.
