For the half-year to 30 June 2014, the IPKat's regular team is supplemented by contributions from guest bloggers Alberto Bellan, Darren Meale and Nadia Zegze.

Two of our regular Kats are currently on blogging sabbaticals. They are David Brophy and Catherine Lee.

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and manufacturers' perspectives on the UK Court of Appeal's recent Lambretta case, which arguably has been pretty much superseded by the all-embracing legal protection conferred on designs by the new European laws on design protection;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