25 Nov 2020 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Presented in conjunction with The Melbourne Law School

In conversation with Francis Gurry – Intellectual Property’s past, present and future

Dr Francis Gurry

In October 2020, Francis Gurry concluded 35 years of service with the World Intellectual Property Organization – the last 12 as Director General.

His achievements with WIPO include the design and implementation of the domain name dispute resolution system, the Beijing and Marrakesh copyright treaties, and the establishment of on-going programs on IP data collection and analysis, the world digital market, the challenges raised by artificial intelligence, and implementation of the Development Agenda.

In a free-flowing and candid discussion with Andrew Christie and Michael Caine, Dr Gurry will reflect on his 35 years of work within the United Nation’s multilateral system – and what the future holds for IP.
