NEWS ROUND-UP FROM THE IPKAT

A few shorties spotted by the IPKat while doing his daily news-trawl:

* From the BBC – Mr Justice Blackburne has granted an order in favour of the British Phonograph Industry ordering ISPs to identify certain downloaders. The IPKat says so far the BPI has only won a single battle against UK downloaders. It’s yet to win the war.

* From RBC – the Russian Prime Minister has announced that the Science and Education minister has submitted proposals on improving the existing laws on the protection of intellectual property to the Russian Government. The IPKat says watch this space for more information as and when it becomes available.

* From Inter Press – in a resolution passed by the WIPO General Assembly, WIPO has agreed to establish a “development agenda”. Although developing countries are claiming that this is a major victory, the IPKat is wont to take such broad declarations with a pinch of salt until they are backed up by substantive action.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
