The IPKat thanks his friend and 1709 Blog colleague Hugo Cox for drawing his attention to Content and Carrier, an impressively presented and well-written weblog on European electronic communications and media law from a talented team of Austrians with both professional and academic credentials. nb: the link to Content and Carrier, broken when this item was posted, has now been mended.
Congratulations are due to Class 46, the European trade mark weblog which has been taken under the benign and supportive stewardship of Euro-TM organisation MARQUES. Yesterday Class 46 received its 1,000th subscriber, 26 months after it began life as a speculative venture in the spread of European trade mark law and brand-related news. The blog has nearly 1,800 searchable items, lovingly composed by an 11-strong team.
The Norwegians are busily celebrating a Big Event of their own. Norway has now taken the necessary steps to join the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement on international design registration (see Class 99 here). This means that all of Europe's European Union and European Free Trade Association countries are now Hagued-up, which is good news for tidy-minded international design registration applicants. Thank you, Solvår Winnie Finnanger, for this information.
