BIO-SLR LATEST


Why, when the year is 2005, does the IPKat receive volume 6, issue 6, for 2003-2004 of a well-regarded legal periodical in the field of IP? The answer is that this is Lawtext's BioScience Law Review, which adopts an unconventional, idiosyncratic calendar of its own which is designed to (i) baffle the tax man, (ii) confuse contributors and readers alike with its anachronism and (iii) violate everything that well-ordered folk like law librarians hold sacred. Anyway, the year is 2005, the volume is 2003-4 and the BioSLR goes its own sweet way. If it wasn't for the high quality of the content, says the IPKat, he thinks he'd catterwaul.

This is what it looks like ...

Interesting content in this issue includes the following:

* Cambridge University lecturer Kathleen Liddell writes on the mythical connection between data protection and confidentiality (always nice to see popular myths debunked);

* Nigel Jones (Linklaters) and David Marsh (Arnold & Porter) contrast UK and US approaches to the doctrine of equivalents in patent law.
