IT'S THE WTMR AGAIN


It's the WTMR again

The second issue of Globe Business Publishing's bimonthly World Trademark Review has now arrived through the IPKat-flap, with a giant pixellated apple on the front cover. Sorry, the Kat couldn't find a web page for the new issue, or a picture of the cover to post on this blog, so you'll have to make do with a different apple for the time being.

It's a good issue, though. 68 pages of seriously small-print features on topics as varied as

* the Apple Corps/Apple Computer (non)-coexistence agreement, depending on which way you view it, analysed by Herbert Smith's Joel Smith (any relation, Joel?) and Laura Deacon;

* the continuing obsession in the US with trade mark dilution, by Jeffrey K. Riffer and Brian M. Yates (Jeffer Mangels Butler & Marmaro, Los Angeles);

Left: Globe Publishing Ltd undercover reporters prepare to infiltrate yet another INTA reception in search of business cards ...

* a post-mortem on INTA's Annual Meeting in Toronto by the IPKat's friend Véronique Musson, who must have self-sacrificingly attended every event in person in order to determine its cosmic significance for trade mark practice;

* a feature on India's new aggressive stance towards IP infringers by Keshav S. Dhakad (Anand & Anand).

If the WTMR maintains its present level of quality, says the IPKat, it has a bright future ahead of it.
