The CIPIL Intellectual Property Seminar Series brings together specialist speakers to discuss prevailing issues in relation to copyright, patents, trademarks, design rights, and other subjects.

The Centre brings together a group of legal academics already recognised for their historical and inter-disciplinary, as well as doctrinal, research. Drawing on the resources of Cambridge University, CIPIL is ideally positioned to carry out and promote well-informed interdisciplinary work.

Subject to speaker consent, the lecture component for each seminar will be made available on the University of Cambridge Streaming Media Service (SMS) and the Apple iTunes platforms. When held in person the Q&A sections will not be included in order to encourage frank and open discussion. You can subscribe to the 'CIPIL Intellectual Property Seminar Series' on iTunes for automatic download to your iTunes library, or an RSS feed is available from the SMS for use on other devices.
