Last November one half of the IPKat, Jeremy Phillips, gave a paper at the PATINNOVA '03 Conference in Luxembourg. The topic was intellectual property dispute resolution in the "new" Europe, i.e. the enlarged European Union which will be in existence from 1 May. His paper contrasted the pros and cons of litigation, arbitration and mediation and concluded that, ultimately, dispute resolution is a potentially expensive business decision and should be judged by the same criteria as any other business spend. A revised version of this paper has now been published in the March edition of Managing Intellectual Property under the title "How to Enforce Rights in Europe". Jeremy writes: "If you read this article and have any comments, however critical, please let me know".
