Congratulations Dr Daniela Simone

Description

Blake Dawson Sydney alumna, Dr Daniela Simone, recently had her book, Copyright and Collective Authorship: Locating Authors of Collaborative Work, published by Cambridge University Press as part of the Cambridge Intellectual Property and Information Law Series. Daniela’s book was recently cited by the UK Court of Appeal in Kogan v Martin [2019] EWCA 1645. The case is one of the most significant decisions concerning the test for joint authorship in UK copyright law to come before the courts in a number of years because it provides clarity in an important aspect of copyright law which, hitherto, has been the subject of conflicting case law. The Court’s decision brings the law on joint authorship closer to the inclusive, contextual approach which Daniela advocates in her book. Daniela was an IP Lawyer in our Sydney office from 2006 to 2009 before moving to the UK where she undertook a BCL, MPhil and DPhil at the University of Oxford. She then joined University College London where she is currently a Lecturer in the Faculty of Laws and Co-Director of the Institute of Brand and Innovation Law
