A note on Thursdays Oct. 30 and Nov. 6
First, let us make sure that you all know that on Thursday Oct. 30 all lectures are canceled at Ifi due to dagen - http://dagen.at.ifi.uio.no/ Enjoy yourselves there instead. (Funny, their web page seems to be all in Norwegian.)
Second, on Nov. 6 we strongly recommend the guest lecture by lawyer and IPR expert Odd Kleiva. He will give an overview from a professional legal, but still entertaining, point of view and answer tricky questions you might have. Some of his examples of court cases regarding copyright infringement - when are things too close and when are they different enough - are simply funny.
