Guillaume Lavoie Ste-Marie joins virtual panel for “Copyright Earthquakes or Minor Tremors? Site Blocking and Reverse Class Actions” at 2020 IPIC Annual Conference

Smart & Biggar is pleased to sponsor the 2020 IPIC virtual conference taking place from October 1-2, 2020. IPIC’s Annual Conference provides an opportunity for members of the IP community to learn about exciting developments in IP and to earn annual CPD and CLE credits. Members, including Smart & Biggar, will join the conference virtually from across Canada.

As part of the conference program, Smart & Biggar Senior Associate Guillaume Lavoie Ste-Marie, of Montreal, will join a panel of peers across Canada for “Copyright Earthquakes or Minor Tremors? Site Blocking and Reverse Class Actions”.  The virtual panel will discuss important new copyright remedies and practical tips on their use, site blocking orders – including when and why should rightsholders seek this type of relief, and the availability of reverse class actions in Canada’s copyright context.

Additionally, Ottawa associate Nora Labbancz was presented yesterday with the IPIC Education Foundation Award in recognition of earning the highest overall mark in the 2019 Canadian Trademark Agent Qualifying Examination.
