PARTHENON ON THE ROCKS; SCOTTISH PATENT CASE


Can anyone help?

One half of the IPKat has received a bottle labelled "Original Parthenon Hellenic Specialty Drink". It's 38% proof and looks quite interesting, but it didn't show up on a Google search. Does anyone know what sort of a drink it is, or what it's made of?

Merpel asks: if it's called Parthenon, should it be served on the rocks? No, says the IPKat, that's for Stones Ginger Wine ...


Scotland the brave!

Only yesterday the IPKat complained that there didn't seem to be any fresh IP cases on the Scottish Cases website. On this occasion, at least, the Kat's lament has brought about an instant response. Today a new case has been posted: ITP SA v Technip Offshore UK Ltd (formerly known as Coflexip Stena Offshore Ltd), a short judgment of just six paragraphs in which the defenders' application for costs in a patent dispute was successful.

If the liquid in the bottle is brown then it is probably Greek brandy and will be sweet like Metaxos. If it is clear pour some in a glass and add water. If it goes cloudy white it will be an ouzo with a liquorice taste and a liability to cause headaches.
