The January 2006 issue of JIPLP, the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice (published by Oxford University Press) has some pretty challenging stuff in it. For example

* Toshiko Takenaka (CASRIP, University of Washington) contrasts the US doctrine of patent claim construction with its UK counterpart and makes some sharp observations;

* Abida Chaudri (Bristows) examines the contents of the London Olympics Bill, which makes grim reading for honest traders as well as dishonest ones;

* Susie Middlemiss and Steven Warner (Slaughter and May) say that Lord Justice Aldous' intriguing dicta in Arsenal v Reed indicate a view of passing off as developing a doctrine of dilution; Chris Wadlow (University of East Anglia) says they're wrong - he's talking of a restitutionary remedy to curb unjust enrichment;

* Russell Falconer (Baker Botts) explains the basis of the Washington Redskins case, where trade mark law and political correctness collide.
