IP Conference in Memory of Arnan Gabriel

Seligsohn Gabrieli & Co., together with the Haifa Center of Law and Technology are hosting what seems intended to become an annual event in memory of Arnan Gabrieli.

The conference seems to be in Hebrew. It is titled “קניין רוחני באינטרנט: הזדמנויות וסיכונים” which means IP on the Internet, Opportunities and Risks.

The event is scheduled for April 5, 2016, with registration at 4 PM.

Awards will presented to students, in memory of Adv. Arnan Gabrieli.

Professor Eric Goldman, the Director of the High Tech Law Institute, Santa Clara University School of Law, USA will speak on “Trademarks on Social Media” the language is not specified.

This will be followed by a session chaired by son-and-heir, Nahum Gabrieli on “Music Copyright, the Future on the Web”. The panelists include Professor Niva Elkin Koren of Haifa University, Law blogger and Adv. Chaim Ravia and Ms Orli Freund Maya, legal counsel of AKUM, the collecting society for Israel music.

I understand that the event is to be held at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya.

COMMENT

Arnan was a leading IP lawyer, scholar and part time lecturer who litigated a number of Israel’s leading IP cases. I did part of my training in the firm, and subsequently managed the patent and design department that was formally headed by semi-retired patent attorney (and Rabbi) Alfred Thee before setting up on my own. I owe a lot to the firm for what I learned there.

An obituary to Arnan Gabrieli may be found here.

This combination of student awards and a conference directed to cutting edge IP issues seems a fitting tribute.

    I’m not sure about the other speakers, but I will definitely be speaking in English! I hope I’ll have the pleasure of seeing you at the event. Eric.

      Dear Eric,

      If you respond to the blog comment, I can post your remark in your name.

      With the name Goldman, you are presumably one of the tribe, so I wasn’t sure what language you’d be speaking in. The invite is in Hebrew. For some potential participants the language does matter – hence although I blog in English, I made this clear.

      I am not sure if I will attend. I have a number of weddings and bar Mitzvas that week and am not sure if I am fee. If I can, I will certainly come.

      Good luck,

      Michael
