SPECIALLY SELECTED

The IPKat has just received the first of three sample issues of Informa's ten-times-a-yearly magazine Copyright World, as an inducement to subscribe. Looking at the September 2004 issue, he notes the following contributions (among others):

* Practitioners' and manufacturers' perspectives on the UK Court of Appeal's recent Lambretta case, which arguably has been pretty much superseded by the all-embracing legal protection conferred on designs by the new European laws on design protection;

* A good critique by Andrew Hobson (Reynolds Porter Chamberlain) of proposals from the European Commission to regulate copyright collecting societies more closely;

* A review by Bird & Bird's Katharine Stephens of the ECJ Advocate General's pro-database right utterances in Case C-203/02, the British Horseracing Board case.

The IPKat is sitting by his letterbox, in anticipation of his next free sample. What, he wonders, will it bring?
