The May 2008 issue of Trademark World is the one that its publishers will be taking to Berlin for this year's International Trademark Association meeting next week. As ever, it has a bright-and-breezy blend of content which includes ...
* Two articles on border/customs control. The first is by Jasna Jusic and Kujtesa Nezaj, both from the Balkan team of SD Petosevic, on border measures in Montenegro and Kosovo -- two little regions that are little known in terms of law and enforcement but which, on account of their proximity to larger and richer European markets, will become increasingly important to IP owners and enforcement agencies. The second, focusing on the EU, is composed by the Simmons & Simmons team of Peter Meyer, Willem Leppink and Jenny Barker;

* An analysis by the Eversheds pair of Antony Gold and Birgit Schluckebier of the recent England and Wales near-decision on sponsored results in Wilson v Yahoo! (noted here by the IPKat);

* "Panacea or Bitter Pill?", this being a shorter and sweeter version of IPKat blogger Jeremy's address to the Pharmaceutical Trade Marks Group on the slightly strained legal relationship between trade marks and international non-proprietary names in Dublin at the beginning of April.
