About me

An Italian-qualified lawyer (avvocato) with experience in copyright, trade marks, fashion and internet laws, I am a tenured Associate Professor in Intellectual Property (IP) Law at Stockholm University.

I am also an Of Counsel at Bird & Bird and an Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (Oxford University Press, peer-reviewed).

I hold law degrees from the University of Florence, an LLM from the University of Cambridge, and PhD from the European University Institute.

I have written extensively in the IP field, and my latest monograph – Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union (Oxford University Press:2019) – tackles the role, action and legacy of the highest EU judicature’s copyright case law.

I comment on IP issues for award-winning IP blogs The IPKat and The 1709 Blog, for which I have authored over 1,000 posts over the past few years.

I have also prepared technical briefings and delivered talks at the request of international organizations and EU institutions and agencies (including WIPO, European Parliament, European Commission, and EUIPO), as well as international professional bodies and organizations (including ALAI, INTA, AIPPI, LIDC, and ECTA).

Teaching

I am part of the Faculty of the LLM in European Intellectual Property Law, and am responsible for designing and delivering lectures in all areas of intellectual property, with a special focus on copyright, trade marks and fashion law.

Research

Over the past few years, my research interests and activities have spanned several topical issues in the areas of intellectual property (IP) and internet laws, with a special focus on the EU and national dimensions.

Areas of work include:

  • The process and result of EU copyright harmonization and the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU);
  • Enforcement of rights (both IP and other rights) over the internet and the role and liability of online intermediaries;
  • Questions of international jurisdiction and applicable law in online IP infringement cases;
  • EU trade mark law and the scope of absolute grounds for refusals;
  • Overlapping IP rights;
  • EU copyright reform policy discourse.

I have solo authored two research monographs, one on Originality in EU Copyright and one on Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union (with a foreword by Maciej Szpunar, First Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the European Union).

I have been contributing to policy debates in my own key areas of expertise as an independent commentator. Besides being asked – by, inter alia, the European Parliament and the European Intellectual Property Office – to produce a number of technical briefings, I have been invited to attend official hearings with EU institutions and agencies (World Intellectual Property Organization, European Parliament, European Commission, European Union Intellectual Property Office) and governments (including Thai Government).

I have presented my research as an invited speaker at several academic institutions and conferences around the world. I have prepared delivered talks at the request of international organizations and EU institutions and agencies, as well as international professional bodies and organizations (including ALAI, INTA, AIPPI, LIDC, and ECTA).

Finally, because of my copyright and IP expertise, I have been often interviewed by leading general interest media publications, including – recently – CNN, The New York Times, The Financial Times, BBC, The Hollywood Reporter, The Guardian.
