Twitter Q&A on March 25 with Professor Hugh Hansen

Professor Hugh Hansen of Fordham Law School is known for asking tough questions of judges, corporate counsel and government officials at the annual Fordham IP Conferences. Now you can turn the tables and put him on the spot in a Twitter Q&A next Tuesday

Hugh Hansen

Hansen has agreed to take part in the Q&A ahead of this year’s Fordham IP Conference, which takes place in Cambridge on April 8 and 9.

You might want to ask him about the Conference – what’s on the agenda this year? what are the hot topics? who will he be grilling? – or any other topical IP issues.

Hansen’s particular areas of interest include US copyright and trade mark law, as well as EU and international IP law, but as many readers will know, he has an opinion on pretty much everything in IP.

You could ask him about copyright and the public domain (on which topic he gave the Sir Hugh Laddie memorial lecture last year), the roles of the US Supreme Court and CJEU, international trade negotiations, or recent IP cases.

How do I join in?

The Q&A will be hosted on Twitter. Managing IP will ask some questions through our Twitter account @managingip using the hashtag #askhughhansen and Hansen (@hughchansen) will answer. But we also want to see questions from lots of other Twitter users.

Taking part is simple:

  • If you do not already have a Twitter account, set one up (it’s free)

  • Starting from 11am EDT on March 25 (3pm London, 4pm continental Europe), post your questions on Twitter using the hashtag #askhughhansen

  • Remember you only have 140 characters (in fact, 125 allowing for the hashtag) so keep your questions concise

  • You can ask as many questions as you like

  • Monitor Twitter for Hansen’s responses and follow up with further questions if you want

After the event, we will post a selection of the questions and answers on this blog.

You may also be interested in our previous Twitter Q&A with Rosa Wilkinson of the UK IPO, which took place in September last year.
