1 A short request to other IP bloggers
The IPKat, like everyone else, uses publicly available news sources for his daily blogs. He's very pleased when other bloggers pay a visit and he doesn't mind at all if they want to use his materials, or his links, for their own blog posts. But it would be nice if, when you've used something you found on this blog, you mention that you saw it here ... A brief credit won't diminish the value of your own blog but will reduce the Kat's tendency to feel that his efforts are being harnessed by others without him receiving any recognition.
Right: the Kat exacts dire retribution from a friend who forgot to give him credit.
2 If you can't stand the heat ...
The IPKat congratulates David Kitchin QC on his elevation, announced in today's The Lawyer, to the High Court. David has been a star performer at 8 New Square and will be viewed as a good, heavyweight replacement for Sir Hugh Laddie, who has shuffled off his wig and headed for the green pastures of private practice with Willoughby & Partners/Rouse & Co.
The IPKat wishes Mr Justice Kitchin the very best of luck and will be scrutinising all his IP decisions with eager anticipation.
