ECTA 40th Annual Conference 2022 Day 2

This year’s ECTA conference looks at some of the practical topics relevant for any contemporary IP professional in the constantly evolving modern environment. You can look forward to interesting speakers and moderators doing their best to provide informative sessions and lively discussions on topics such as dispute solutions, licensing, appeal proceedings, communication, data, ethical and practical aspects of using the AI tools, most recent IP news and case law developments and much more. Being in Denmark invites us to zoom in on the areas of fashion and design, food industry challenges, IP & start-ups with dedicated conference sessions. And of course, as one cannot design the future without looking at the past, we will also look at lessons learned from the past of the IP profession in light of the practical issues for new generations.

The Royal Danish Theatre has been located at Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen since 1748, originally designated as the king’s theatre but with public access. This was the theatre to which the 14-year-old fairy-tale storyteller Hans Christian Andersen devoted his early ambition and which became the social and artistic focal point of the many brilliant artists of Denmark’s Golden Age.

After the abolition of absolute monarchy in 1849, the Royal Danish Theatre’s status as ‘the city’s theatre’ fell into decline. The dilapidated building at Kongens Nytorv also found it hard to compete with the splendour of the new popular stage that were rapidly emerging across town. The solution was to construct a brand new theatre building: the inauguration of what we today call the Old Stage took place on 15 October 1874.

The Royal Danish Theatre has over the past decade undergone the most extensive transformation ever in its over 250-year history. The Opera House in Copenhagen was inaugurated in January 2005, (designed by architect Henning Larsen), the Royal Danish Playhouse was completed in 2008. Located by Nyhavn Canal across from the Opera House, the Playhouse is designed by architects Boje Lundgaard and Lene Tranberg. Today, the Royal Danish Theatre comprises the Old Stage, the Opera House and the Royal Danish Playhouse.
