IPKAT TRANSLATION WATCH: OH, THE SHEER FRUSTRATION!


Here's an Opinion of Advocate General Philippe Léger (Case C-418/02, Praktiker Bau- und Heimwerkermärkte, 13 January 2005). This Opinion is available only in Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, Italian and German.

Once again, can some kind person PLEASE put the IPKat and his myriad readers out of their misery by telling them what the nice man said (he thinks it's something to do with service marks). Merpel adds, "it's enough to make a cat cry ..."


"Please tell us what the nice man said. We're sooooo curious ..."

Google hits for "make a cat cry" here

This is particularly daft because the original language of the Opinion is French - but the Opinion is not available in French!

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
