On March 5, I will be joining Prof. Barton Beebe and others at NYU in a luncheon discussion on IP issues in China. I have attended or spoken at several of these NYU luncheon programs, hosted by Prof. Jerome Cohen (no relation) and they are all always a pleasure. There is no fee for attending, but please RSVP. Here is an excerpt from the announcement.
“Our next distinguished lunch speaker, on Thursday, March 5 in Furman Hall (245 Sullivan St) rm 120, will be Barton Beebe, the John M. Desmarais Professor of Intellectual Property Law at NYU School of Law.

In addition Mark Cohen … will also make comments and participate in the lunchtime discussion. The talk will be from 12:30pm-1:45pm.
