The IPKat has found a bit of an oldie. Last week the Japan Times reported that Japan has established a specialist IP High Court. The court, which will hear appeals from the Tokyo and Osaka district courts, is composed of 18 judges who will eventually be aided by more than 100 technology-savy assistants. It is expected to hear about 700 cases a year. While an appeal from the IP Court to the Supereme Court is theoretically possible, in practice the Superem Court only hears cases of special importance.
The wrong sort of Japanese court…
