Professor Llewelyn Asks Rhetorical Question About IPRs: "Too Important to Leave to the Lawyers?"

Tonight, IP Dragon is looking forward to attend the lecture of Professor David Llewelyn about the relevancy of Intellectual Property Rights for everybody.

"As Premier Wen Jiabao has been saying since 2004, world competition in the 21st century will revolve around competition for intellectual property rights (IPRs). But what are these rights, what can you do with them and how can we foster the innovation and creativity they protect?"

Professor David Llewelyn is Honorary Professor IPR Law at the University of Hong Kong and King’s College in London. He is also Deputy Chairman and External Director of the IP Academy in Singapore, and Partner and Head of IP at international law firm White & Case in its London office, and Chairman of IPR-X (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based IP strategy and investment company. Professor Llewelyn is one of the world’s leading experts on the protection and commercialisation of IPRs.

Professor Llewelyn is well known for his co-authorship of the book: Cornish, William & David Llewelyn, 'Intellectual Property: Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks and Allied Rights'.

I was amazed that Prof. Llewelyn could cover nearly everything in IP within one hour, do so using plain language and yet not bore the legal experts in the room. This was a truly amazing demonstration of his powers of communication and instruction.
