So it is time to take the bull by the horns on this project. Our goal is try and consider one of these IP Golden Oldies each month or so. At Bob Sacoff's urging, we will begin with a recognized classic article written by the iconic founder his firm, Beverly Pattishall, entitled "Trade-Marks and the Monopoly Phobia", published in the Michigan Law Review in 1952. ("When did they stop hyphenating the word 'trade-marks' in the U.S., by the way?") We hope to post on our comments on it within several weeks.
In the meantime, what this Kat would really like is for those of you outside of the U.S. to suggest classic IP articles from your own jurisdiction. IPKat has an array of linguistic capabilities, so don't be shy. If we can't handle the article, we will try to out-source it to an interested feline in the IP world who will be able to assist. We look forward to hearing from you.
