The May issue of the monthly Sweet & Maxwell publication The European Intellectual Property Review has now been published. It contains, as usual, a selection of gripping pieces. These include the following:
* Maciej Barczewski (University of Gdansk) writes on "International Frameworks for Legal Protection of Digital Rights Management Systems" -- a nice twist, since people are so preoccupied with what it is that DRM systems protect that they don't focus on protection of the DRM systems themselves;

* Belinda Isaac and Rajiv Joshi (Morgan Cole, Oxford) review current case law on the tests employed in establishing whether trade marks are "identical" to one another;

* Also on the subject of trade marks, IPKat co-owner Ilanah Simon gives a full analytical account of the fascinating decision of Electrocoin v Coinworld on infringement and validity on a most unusual set of facts;

* Angus McCulloch (University of Manchester) reviews recent cases that protect the right of computer game manufacturers to impose their pestilential "region locks" on computer games.

  1. Hello fellow fisherman,

    Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

    Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

    Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

    Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

    I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

    You will be one of the first to try it out.

    Gone Fishin',

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
