Thank you again, say the IPKat, Merpel and the rest of the crew, for your continued support of this weblog. According to our web counter, we have oh-so-nearly welcomed today our two millionth visitor since the blog was launched in June 2003 (we should hit that magic figure tomorrow, but Saturday is a day on which Kats tend not to do much blogging, while Friday is propitious for every form of celebration).
Around the blogs. The IP Finance weblog welcomes Louise O'Callaghan(left) back into its team. London barrister Louise, formerly at Hardwicke when she wrote a series of articles on IP and insolvency issues in the UK, has now migrated to 1 Essex Court where she looks forward to developing her IP practice. IP Tango has kept us up-to-date on the big IP non-story of the week: Brazil's seeming reluctance to retaliate against the United States by targeting its intellectual property rights (see here for details).
