23 March 2017

Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm

Our distinguished speaker for our third Global IP Law Lecture, Professor Dinusha Mendis, will present valuable insights found in her paper based on her AHRC-funded project titled 'Going for Gold: A Legal and Empirical Case Study into 3D Scanning, 3D Printing and Mass Customisation of Ancient and Modern Jewellery'.

Professor Mendis will set out the findings, conclusions and recommendations from the UK Intellectual Property Office Commissioned Project before moving on to a consideration of the aforementioned AHRC-funded project, covering IP and licensing issues arising, with a specific focus on ancient and modern jewellery in the cultural and business sectors. Professor David Musker (QM CCLS) and Dr Marc Dominic Mimler (University of Bournemouth), both of whom have extensive experience and knowledge of this topic, will provide their expert views.

Professor Dinusha Mendis is the Professor of Intellectual Property Law and Co-Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM) at the University of Bournemouth. She specialises in Intellectual Property Law, in particular, copyright law, copyright licensing and digital copyright policy.

Professor David Musker is a Professor of International Design Law in Queen Mary CCLS and Of Counsel at RGC Jenkins & Co, and Dr Marc Mimler is a Lecturer (Academic) in Law at Bournemouth University.
