Happy Holidays from IP Osgoode

Happy Holidays from IP Osgoode

Giuseppina D’Agostino is the Founder and Director of IP Osgoode and an Assistant Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School.

IP Osgoode would like to wish each of you a very Happy Holiday! 

We appreciate your interest and support over the past year and would like to thank all of you for the many kind comments about IP Osgoode that we have received.

2009 has been a very busy year for intellectual property and technology law, and we have witnessed many exciting, curious, and remarkable developments.

Our IP Poll of the Week lists just a few of the IP highlights from 2009 that attracted much attention in Canada and internationally.  Included among them are Canada's cross-country public copyright consultations this past summer, the Google Books settlement, the Pirate Bay decision in Sweden, the US Supreme Court's hearing of the In Re Bilski business method patent case, and the CRTC’s decision on ISP traffic management practices.

Please vote and let us know which stories from 2009 were the most important!  We would also love to hear from you about what you think were the most significant IP highlights of 2009.  Let us know if you have any thoughts or predictions for 2010 and beyond -- next year should prove to be an even more fascinating year!

We will return from the holiday break on 4 January 2010 and we look forward to your participation in all of our upcoming IP Osgoode activities.
