Afro-IP, the intellectual property blog which is aimed specifically at IP legal and commercial developments within the vast enigma which is Africa, has just undergone a template face-lift. Gone is the reversed-out white-on-black text; in its place is an altogether lighter, brighter backgrop. You can check it out here.
New patent weblog PatLit, launched at the beginning of this month, has already notched up its 100th email subscriber. If you've not already seen PatLit, you can catch it here.
The news has broken (thanks to IP Watch) that WIPO's Head of Global IP Issues Antony Taubman, a valued supporter of both this weblog and The SPC Blog (being the supplier of some very helpful content), is to head the World Trade Organization's IP Division from 1 May 2009. Congratulations, Tony -- we wish you the best of luck.
