IP Crime Congress, 5th - 6th July 2005.
Royal College of Surgeons, London.

The event is officially backed &fully endorsed by the Patent Office, the Home Office, the Department of Trade and Industry, HM Customs and Excise, the Assets Recovery Agency and the Risk and Security Management Forum.

It is the first European initiative that will bring these organisations together with the business community to scope the extent of the problem and find practical measures and solutions to help combat organised IP Crime. Through structured themes the Congress will look at international examples of enforcement, case studies of partnership models (such as those used by the National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU)), as well as identify and understand the latest threats of IP Crime and ways in which we can help ourselves.

In addition, the event will produce an outcome statement that will feed into the Tackling Organised Crime in Partnership initiative, an annual event backed by the UK government and the EU which has produced recommendations used to form EU policy on tackling organised crime throughout the European Union.

The Congress is not a talking shop; it is a government endorsed initiative to find models and solutions that can be implemented in partnership. It will act as a platform to enrol more and diverse energy and partners into the new UK IP Crime Strategy. There is real commitment from law enforcement to become involved and educate itself more about the genuine and urgent needs of business with SOCA (Serious and Organised Crime Agency) the brand new national agency set up to combat level 3 crime in attendance.

Unlike other IP events the IP Crime Congress is not a legal conference. Instead it will address the issues of intellectual property crime and promote as all of our events do, a partnership approach in collectively tackling the problem of organised Crime.

This initiative will look to create EU wide policy as 2005 sees the UK holding the presidency of the EU. An excellent opportunity to put yourself forward and express your views as well as network with many others from different sectors who share the same interests as yourself - to help their business function more effectively and profitably.
