The list of forthcoming events is even more burgeoning than ever! Since not everyone has the leisure to peruse it, specialist sub-lists have now been set up for events that are specific to patent litigation (on PatLit), copyright (on The 1709 Blog) and intellectual property damages, valuation, securitisation and other financial issues (on the IP Finance Blog).
The IPKat notes that the John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law (“RIPL”) has just published the first issue of volume nine. Contributors include Professor William Henslee on how the Recording Industry of America is working with internet service providers to reduce the rampant copyright infringement of music on the internet; Professor Shubha Ghosh discusses the impact of the Economic Espionage Act 1996 and federal criminal trade secret law in the US on the global mobility of skilled labour, while Professor Amir H. Khoury explains how the Emirate of Dubai is reinventing its economic identity with an emphasis on intellectual property. Finally Professor Linda M. Beale provides incite regarding the potential impact of In re Bilski on the future of tax planning strategy patents. For further information click here.
Thanks, Jeff Roberts (long-time IPKat reader and author of McGill's IP News this Week), for sending the Kats a link to this entertaining and informative article from the Wall Street Journal on one man's mission to promote Anti-Monopoly and his struggles with the owners of the IP rights in Monopoly.
The IPKat has enjoyed his time on Twitter, where he has learned a great deal about succinct writing and has shared a large amount of IP-related information with colleagues all over the world. Having a penchant for poetry and the arts, the Kat is delighted to discover that he is being followed by Patent Limericks. Not all the content is limerick-related, but the idea's a lovely one.
