Nahum and Ehud Gabrieli of Seligsohn Gabrieli & Co. are hosting a conference in memory of Arnan Gabrieli at Airforce House Herzliya on 8th May 2018. The event is cosponsored with the Haifa Center for Law and Technology and AKUM – the main Performers Copyright Collection Society in Israel.
The program features a lecture by Gad Oron who now manages CISAC, the international Confederation of Unions of Creator and Composers , and Jennifer Bernal, the Public Policy Manager of Google.
Scholarships for outstanding IP Students in memory of Arnan Gabrieli will be awarded.
I worked for Seligsohn Gabrieli & Co. back in Arnan’s day, when the firm was called Seligsohn et Gabrieli before I left in 2004 to set up my own patent attorney firm. Back in those days, Gad Oron was busy running around the District Courts as, on behalf of AKUM, the firm sued restaurants and hairdressing salons for streaming Israeli music without license. Gad went to London where he did an LLM under Professor Jeremy Phillips at Queen Mary College, which eventually led to his current position.
This conference is a fitting tribute to Arnan who was both a practitioner and scholar.
