About the Summer School

The one-week online programme is offered by the Intellectual Property Law Chair of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Jagiellonian University is one of Europe’s oldest universities (founded in 1364).

This year we will discuss the quality of IPRs, both registered and unregistered rights to clarify the importance of good IPRs. Bad IPRs undermine the integrity of the protection system and its justification. Low quality IPRs cause legal uncertainty and increase costs for the users of this system (esp. right holders and competitors) who then find IP protection delusive and inadequate to their needs. The critical reflection on IP quality is crucial for effective IP management to optimise the IP portfolio. We will approach these problems horizontally, to see the problems and tendencies common to all regimes and vertically, looking at the specifics of each regime.

The programme of the 2020 Summer School is available here.
