FORMATION OF HM COURTS SERVICE - BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR IP?


Doing his daily internet trawl, the IPKat discovered that the Court Service and the Magistrates' Court Service have been merged, to form Her Majesty's Courts Service. The IPKat isn't sure what the implications of this are for IP litigation (except for the introduction of a new, difficult to use website), but he notes that this change encompasses the Patents County Court and the Patents Court, as well as the standard Chancery Division, Court of Appeal and House of Lords - all of which hear IP cases. Suggestions from readers would be welcomed.
