Two great events you will not want to miss.
Sheffield 5 March 2012
James Wallbank of Access Space will talk about Refab-Space which provides many of the facilities that are offered by the FabLabs around the world. I heard James speak at Integreatplus's Learning Lunch and he is a really inspiring speaker.
The talk takes place at Central Library, Surrey Street, Sheffield, S1 1XZ at 18:00 on 5 Match 2012. If the talk is anything like the last one it will be standing room only. Admission is free but you are strongly advised to book your place in advance. Call or email Lynne Hichcliffe on 0114 273 4736 to let her know you are coming. See today's post "Refab - a fabrication laboratory for Sheffield" in IP Yorkshire.
Carlisle, 8 March 2012
On the other side of the Pennines IP North West will present an Introduction to Intellectual Property Law to Freerange Artists in Carlisle on 8 March 2012 between 10:30 and 13:30. Speakers include patent attorney Tom Hutchinson of Hutchinson IP and David Flint of MacRoberts one of the leading intellectual property lawyers in the United Kingdom. As a Scottish solicitor, David can give some insight into some of the features of Scots law that differ from those of England and Wales. He can obviously assist creative entrepreneurs immediately to the North of Carlisle wall but he can also alert those in Cumbria and Westmorland with customers and suppliers to the North who prefer their own legal system of the pitfalls and advantages of Scots law. I shall chair the meeting, introduce the topic generally and speak on enforcement. Call or email Hannah Stewart on 01228 401324 for further information.
