This is a little off topic for me and its also quite location specific - I will explain why in a minute. A friend of mine; Dr Eileen McMorrow who is a solicitor specialising in legal aspects of IPR and IP is holding two seminars in York (UK) on the 2nd of November and the 9th of November. The seminars are two hours and include Yorkshire lunch!. I won't go into every detail here as Eileen has created a flyer to advertise the events. I have added the flyer to my site so I can link it here in advance of it being available on Eileens site. The event is called "Legal Issues that face web designers
" and the linked flyer explains the event and how to register.
This should be very interesting seminar and I have already booked my place. The subject of IPR, Information and more are becoming synonymous with what we as data security professionals deal with day to day. The ICO (Information Commisioners Office); Stewart Room
today today hinted that the Information Commissioner may announce the first ICO fine at the RSA conference - not the same I know but the ideas around data security, IPR and legality of data are all linked.
Personally i am looking forwards to this; if anyone is in York or nearby please think about coming along. Its just £15 to attend and including lunch so really good value.
