The January 2007 issue of the Oxford University Press monthly Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice has almost been published, alas rather later than usual on account of the time taken for the handsome new red ink to dry on its illustrious newly-freshened cover. This is quite literally the latest issue, in that no previous issue has ever been published quite so very late ...
Particular attractions to be found include
* "The orphan works dilemma and museums: an uncomfortable straitjacket", by aspiring young US commentator Simon Teng (abstract here);Full contents here
* "Enforcement of Community Designs by Alicante courts: a promising start", by one of the OHIM design gurus, José J. Izquierdo Peris (abstract here);
* "Intellectual property protection and enforcement at major events: Practical lessons learnt from the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games" by Allens Arthur Robinson duo Tim Golder and Wendy Burnett (abstract here).

Seattle Trademark Lawyer
The IPKat's friend Peter Groves has just drawn his attention to the Seattle Trademark Lawyer blog. Piloted by Michael G. Atkins (left), a lawyer-shareholder at the Seattle law firm of Graham & Dunn, it provides some fairly concise and manageable information on US trade mark, trade dress and copyright-flavoured cases, ever-so-slightly treading on the magisterial toes of the TTABlog. The archives go back to November 2006, so it's a fairly recent addition to the IP bloggie family: the IPKat and Merpel wish it well.
