MORE REPORTED COPYRIGHT AND DESIGN CASES


Issue 2 of the Sweet & Maxwell publication The European Copyright and Design Reports has now been released. It contains just two cases this time, but they're pretty interesting ones.

* Uitgeverij Byblos BV v J. K. Rowling and others [2004] ECDR 61: This is the decision of the Court of Appeal of Amsterdam to allow the continuation of the interim injunction ordered in favour of the Dutch publishers of of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, against the publishers of Tanja Grotter and the Magic Double Bass.
* Intercase UK Ltd and another v Time Computers Ltd [2004] ECDR 78: An action before Mr Justice Patten (UK, Chancery Division) in which he had to consider issues relating to the ownership and passage of title in the design right for an integrated computer desk.

There are still no decisions from OHIM on any aspects of the Community design, if the OHIM website is anything to go by.
