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;IPKat co-blogmeister Jeremy, who edits JIPLP, is always anxious for feedback and exciting ideas for future features.

* 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.
