LATEST MIP


The December/January issue of ten-times-a-year Managing Intellectual Property is now out. Published by Euromoney, this title carries a high-fibre diet of newsy and informative features, as well as its much loved/hated lists of most highly rated patent and trade mark firms in different jurisdictions. This issue contains, among other topics, the following items:

* Emma Barraclough writes on the slow progress/no progress that has been made in seeking to harmonise trade mark and patent grant procedures in the Asean countries;


The Laugh It Off case: a parody of Black Label goes to court
* Alan Smith writes on the South African "Laugh it Off" case and reviews the protection of well-known marks there.

* Editor James Nurton reviews the "top ten" IP blogs and says some very nice things about this one.

MIP: always a good read -- and not afraid to court controversy
