Issue three (March 2005) of Sweet & Maxwell's Entertainment Law Review has now emerged. It's still very thin -- the IPKat hopes it's not going down with a dreadful disease -- but there's some good and readable material in it. This includes:
* Paris-based Hogan & Hartson lawyers Winston J. Maxwell and Julie Massaloux team up with their Budapest colleague Aurel Pinter to describe the current tax incentives for making motion pictures in France and Hungary;Click here for your copy of Film Theft in the UK
* David Engel (Addleshaw Goddard, London) reviews the UK Film Council's Film Theft in the UK and looks at the opportunities provided by the new technologies as well as their inevitable threats;
* Veteran IP commentator Peter Groves (Bircham Dyson Bell) adds his thoughts on the recent Court of Appeal decision in Griggs v Evans - the "Doc Martens logo" case - relating to copyright in commissioned logos. Not specifically an entertainment law issue, but neither is it exactly irrelevant to that field.
