Last Day to Enroll for Free WIPO Class on IP
Wednesday, August 31 2005 @ 10:55 AM EDT

I wanted to remind you that today is the last day to sign up for WIPO's free class on what they call a general course on intellectual property. You enroll here, choosing the second title on the page, DL-101 General Course on Intellectual Property, which they describe like this:
Summary: This course covers the main areas of intellectual property, namely copyright, related rights, patents, trademarks, geographical indications, industrial design, plant breeders' rights, unfair competition and international registration systems.

Tutored: Yes
Duration: 50 hours
Cost: Free of Charge
Next Session: October-November 2005 (Enrollment will be available from July 1 to August 31)

So hop on board, if the topic interests you. I must admit this is the first time I've ever been offered a course that includes a section on plant breeders' rights, and it doesn't have an immediate appeal, but the price is right, and I do want to understand WIPO's views on the subject of intellectual property, a phrase that I must tell you I find a bit offensive, after spending hours looking at the devastation in New Orleans and neighboring states, struck by how little real property and intellectual property have in common, and what a strained metaphor it really is.
