IMPORTANT: From September 1 2008 firstname.lastname@example.org will CEASE TO OPERATE. (Rather unlike,it has to be said, lovely ed.ac.uk which two years on is still faithfully forwarding the odd email..)
My new email is email@example.com . You can start using this as of now but it will become vital after September 1. Please note the odd spelling of my first name :)
I am also stepping down as Director of ILAWS. I remain Associate Director of SCRIPT/the AHRC Centre for Intellectual property and Technology at Edinburgh.
Talking of which , one of my happiest jobs in that capacity is to still act as a Managing Editor of SCRIPT-ed, the online journal of the AHRC Centre, whose remit is very broadly the interaction between law and technology. The most recent issue (Vol 5 No 1) includes papers on topics as varied as trade mark dilution, user attitudes to P2P services and the ethical issues surrounding 'bionic' athletes. We are always interested in prospective contributions for SCRIPTed, and we are also keen to hear from suitably-qualified referees to help peer-review submissions. One of the key strengths of SCRIPT-ed I think is that in a field as dynamic as IT and IP law we can usually guarantee swift publication, while retaining the rigour of peer-review.
So, why not make a date in your diaries for what promises to be a fascinating and enjoyable three days in the beautiful city of Edinburgh?
