Inside this issue:

Look inside this month’s Intellectual Property Law issue of BarTalk for a diverse range of articles – from trademark and copyright issues arising in the context of tattoos – to a description of the fulsome set of skills required for the competent entertainment lawyer’s toolbox. Challenges posed by intellectual property rights across a variety of sectors is a recurring theme, coupled with practical tips for meeting those challenges, and opportunities for innovation.

Also inside you will find the inaugural instalment of Indigenous Matters, written this month by Tina L. Dion, QC, Chair of the Aboriginal Lawyers’ Forum and the Truth and Reconciliation Working Group.
