The January 2005 issue of Sweet & Maxwell's journal Entertainment Law Review is now on the streets. It contains, among other things, the following features:

* Barrister Phillip Johnson (Department of Trade and Industry) writes on the current state of the defence of "public interest" in an action for copyright infringement, which was developed through a large volume of case law before the implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998 and which is now of uncertain application in its case law form;

* Paloma Pertusa (ex-Alicante and University of London postgrad and a friend of the IPKat) explains the legal regime for the protection of photographs under Spanish copyright law;

* Solicitor Peter Groves provides a case note on the copyright case of Sawkins v Hyperion Records.

The IPKat likes the Entertainment Law Review but fervently wishes it had more pages in it, particularly in view of its high price.
