TRIPs AND TRADE MARKS


1 A quick request for information on TRIPs

IPKat co-blogmeister Jeremy is wondering whether very much has been written on the provisions of Article 17 the TRIPs Agreement that enable Member states to make exceptions to the trade mark right. He knows about the books by Daniel Gervais and Carlos Correa, but he'd like to find if anyone has written on this topic from a specifically trade mark-oriented perspective. If you can recommend any good reading, please email Jeremy here and tell him.


2 Intel v Intelsoft

The IPKat has picked up on a spat between Intel Corporation and Intelsoft Ltd, whose use of the term "intelsoft" on its website has not endeared it to the US chip giant. Subscription service All England Direct informs him that the court (Mr Justice Mann) has ordered the defendant's director to provide fuller and more informative answers to Intel's questions about its www.intelsoft.co.uk website.

The IPKat promises it will let you know what happens next ... if he can ever find out about it.
