IPRIA is hosting a seminar on the Commonwealth Government’s announced intention to ban the use of artwork and logos on cigarette packaging.
- Prof. Mark Davison
- Prof. John Freebairn, a professor of economics at Melbourne Uni
- Ass. Prof. Angela Paladino, who teaches in Marketing at Melbourne Uni (and is a recipient of over $2M in competitive funding)
- Tim Wilson, the Director of Intellectual Property and Free Trade unit at the Institute of Public Affairs.
They threaten to “consider the economic, legal, ethical and marketing implications of this decision”. Unfortunately, there is no indication that Kev10 will be there to perform his patented double pike with backflip. However, it does seem that the Senate Committee inquiring into the bill is not due to report until 26 August 2010. (although submissions should well and truly be in by now).
Wednesday, 26 May 2010 at 6pm (Lecture Theatre GO8, Melbourne Law School)
The seminar is free and there are CPD points going.
