Africa IP - what would you like to know?

Over on the INTA 2013 Meeting Linkedin Group there is a discussion "Africa: what do you want to know?" calling for your questions on the most common Africa IP concerns? This year the regional update is moderated by the experienced Adams & Adams' Simon Brown and yours truly is in the dock, hoping to make it as relevant as possible.

Several years ago, the Africa session was scrapped from the agenda. With your help and some exposure on this blog, we got it re-inserted and it is now in a more favourable time slot. Please attend, question and heckle. But most importantly, please take a few seconds to ask your questions on the Linkedin Group or send us an email here.
