New tm journal on the block

This year's INTA Meeting coincided with the launch of a new bimonthly journal, World Trademark Review, published out of the UK by Globe Business Publishing, part of Globe White Page. This handsomely-produced title, a sister to Intellectual Asset Management, shares its clean, crisp style and layout.

The contents of the first issue appear to be firmly aimed at trade mark decision-makers rather than at practitioners; where the law is reviewed, it is more in terms of what it can (or cannot) achieve rather than in terms of "how to do it" - although there is plenty of content for the nuts and bolts practitioner too, such as the navigation guide to the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. There are also three 'avenues' to the EU's recent IP Enforcement Directive, which was supposed to have been implemented by 29 April this year - one being a detailed 'inside' approach, the other offering practitioners' and owners' perspectives.

The IPKat thinks there's plenty of room for this title, even in the crowded market for trade mark publications. He's a bit worried, though, about how to abbreviate it: "TMR" is already taken up by INTA's long-established Trademark Reporter. He also heard of there being some cases of confusion between World Trademark Review and Trademark World: let's hope the two titles are clearly enough differentiated so that even an easily confused Kat can tell them comfortably apart ...

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
