The November 2004 issue of Euromoney plc's Managing Intellectual Property has lots of goodies in it. The cover story is an interview with the European Patent Office's President Pompidou, who holds the presidency till Britain's Alison Brimelow takes over in the summer of 2007. Other attractions include

* "Record Companies Rocked by Loss of Rights" by London-based lawyers Andrew Forbes and Jane Mulcahy, a comment on the reaction of recording companies to the fact that the copyright in so many classic rock'n'roll and jazz tracks is coming to an end.

* "Yahoo! fails to Block French Judgment in US" by Neil Smith -- ob the most recent phase of a struggle to enforce in the US a French court order which was felt to be both technically difficult to implement and contrary to freedom of speech;

The other President Pompidou here and here
