The March 2005 issue of Sweet & Maxwell's monthly European Intellectual Property Review is now out. What's in it this time? Lots of good stuff, as usual. The IPKat's selection includes the following choice goodies:

* Rebecca Baines (Slaughter and May) explains the legal issues arising from a failure to take a formal assignment of copyight in a commissioned work, which led to extensive litigation in Griggs v Evans (the Doc Martens case here, here and ultimately here);

* Academics Mark J. Davison and Bernt Hugenholtz tackle the ECJ's recent decisions on database right;

* Carolina Pina and Ana Gil-Robles (Garrigues) write on steps taken to combat one of the IPKat's favourite commercial tactics, ambush marketing.
