Hence, mark your calendar and suit up for the following – (Being a soft IP lawyer, I do not keep a track of patent centric events, hence sincere apologies for not highlighting them. However, if some of you want to take a lead, you are more than welcome to do so.)

About Seemantani Sharma (My views are my own and they should be yours too)

Nomadic IP Lawyer. Penchant for reading, critically thinking and writing (at times ranting) about IP. Awaiting for the Eureka moment for clearing my perpetual muddled academic interest - the global politics of IP or its economics or their confluence Aspire to enrol for a Ph.D in international and comparative IP law in the next five years or so.

    I missed the Global IP Summit 2015 organised by the Global Intellectual Property Center of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Details of the event can be found at – http://www.theglobalipcenter.com/ipsummit2015/.
    Extensive coverage of soft IP issues – copyright, trademarks and trade-secrets is something to watch out for (not mention that it’s a great networking event sans any costs attached – a rarity in D.C. legal networking landscape!).
