March’s tantalising issue of the European Intellectual Property Review has been unleashed. Peel back its cool, grey exterior for the following delights:
*Paul Edward Geller on Dissolving Intellectual Property;
*Joes J Izquierdo Peris (OHIM) on two years of the registered Community design;
*P Akester (Cambridge) and R Akester (UCL) on digital rights management;
*Winifried Tilmann (Lovells) on harmonising EPC and national patent practice;
Cool and grey - just like the EIPR
*Maurice Gonsalves (Mallesons Stephen Jaques) and Patrick Flynn (Banco Chambers) on Australian dilution law;
*Paul Stephenson (St James’s Chambers) on comparative advertising;
*Comments on Oakley v Animal from Martin Howe (8 New Square) and counterfeit goods in South Africa from Lee-Ann Tong (University of Cape Town);
*The usual book reviews and news
*A letter from France – the first in a six-monthly series providing an overview of recent French IP developments .
IPKat film club
Friend of the IPKat Carina Badger has informed the Kat of 2006’s must-see movie for patent pedants, copyright and trade mark everywhere. Snappily titled Intellectual Property, it tells the story of an inventor who must prevent his inventions becoming ‘casualties of the cold war’ (whatever that means). Don’t all rush out at once though – the film isn’t due to be released until August.
