Winners of the Gowlings Best Blog in IP Law and Technology Prize

IP Osgoode would like to congratulate the winners of the Gowlings Best Blog in IP Law and Technology Prize for 2011-2012.  Four prizes in total are awarded each year to Osgoode students.  The winning blog posts are featured in the IPilogue. Recipients also receive a $500 award, are announced at Convocation and receive a permanent notation on their official Osgoode transcript.

Gowlings Best Blog in IP Law and Technology Prize (the “Gowlings IPilogue Prize”) was pioneered in Professor Giuseppina D’Agostino’s Intellectual Property class in the Fall 2007 term and has been generously sponsored each year since then by Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP.

All entries to the IPilogue submitted by Osgoode students are considered automatically for the prize (except those submitted by IPilogue Editors).

For students, this is a chance to recognize their research and writing in a specialized and technical field.  It also encourages law students with a strong interest in Intellectual Property Law to develop that interest.  Of course, the subject matter of the IPilogue goes beyond strictly IP.  Our stories also delve into related areas of Technology Law, including: internet law, privacy rights, broadcasting, e-commerce, social media and free speech.


We are pleased to announce this year’s winners of the Gowlings IPilogue Prizes:

Fall 2011:

Elias Lyberogiannis (Parsley, Parsnip, Peas, & Peppers: Patent Policy Perspectives From The Vegetable Field)

Philip Goldbach (Steve Jobs: A Legacy In Patents)

Winter 2012:

Alexander Ly (Bill C-11: Through the Lens of Social Norms)

Joshua Dallman (The SOCAN Experience: A Semester in Osgoode’s IP Intensive Program)


Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all who make the IPilogue possible.  We are most grateful to Gowlings for its generous support.
