Who is my public? - 20th Feb 2013

In a series of recent judgments, including C-162/10 Irish PPL and C-135/10 SCF, the Court of Justice has set out the scope of the communication to the public and performance right. The expert panel will consider whether this clarifies the law or simply raises more questions.

Patenting Stem Cells—A wrong or A right? - 27th Mar 2013

The patenting of stem cells has been considered by the European Patent Office (G 2/06 WARF) and the Court of Justice (C-34/10 Brustle) so as to exclude many such inventions from patentability. Is it getting the morality balance right or will it just damage research?
