All change!

The IPKat's friend Chris Rycroft, the publisher at Oxford University Press who was responsible for launching the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice and for building up OUP's now-formidable list of intellectual property and competition law books, has left OUP for a new and exciting challenge. He has just moved into private legal practice with London solicitors Lewis Silkin, with whom he will be working in the field of practice development.

Right: of the 1oo or so hits secured by a Google Image search for "Chris Rycroft", this was the one the Kats liked best.

Meanwhile, the IPKat has learned that the hot-seat formerly occupied by Chris Rycroft at OUP will be filled by Luke Adams. No stranger to intellectual property law, Luke has been building up a long and lively list of IP titles for Edward Elgar Publishing. This company has worked hard to elevate the status of multi-authored collections of essays on contemporary IP law, of which the New Directions in Copyright series is an outstanding example.

Left: the "Luke Adams" Google Image search notched up over 2,000 hits -- of which this was the best likeness.

Both the IPKat and Merpel wish Chris and Luke good luck in their respective new ventures.
