I’ve just come back from an interesting conference at Windsor organised by Queen Mary Intellectual Property Institute, and part of European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN). Some of the presentations got me thinking about the use of PowerPoint. I’m always using slides, and while I admit that I tend to use them on my own benefit, they can be over-used, or mis-used. In the words of Prof. Roger Brownsword, “Power corrupts, PowerPoint corrupts absolutely”.
I plead guilty of torture by PowerPoint then, and inducing what is known as PowerPoint Poisoning.
