list of websites offering advice and guidance to IP owners and practitioners is likely to be made available on Friday, with the addition of warnings from another four countries (Czech Republic, Ireland, Israel, Slovak Republic). There are still far too many national patent and trade mark offices that offer no advice or guidance at all -- and it is apparent that most countries have little resolve and inadequate laws to deal with this problem. If your country is one of them, the time to start campaigning has long passed -- but it's not too late to put things right for the future!
From the IPKat's friend Chris Torrero comes news that the Legal Information Institute of India (LII of India) has been officially launched in Delhi this month. .LII of India now offers 108 databases (plus a further eight virtual databases), which readers can check out here. Of particular interest to the IP/IT fraternity are the following:
* Indian Journal of Intellectual Property Law (INJlIPLaw) from 2008
Indian data -- on a plate!
* Indian Journal of Intellectual Property Rights (INJlIPR) from 2002
* Indian Journal of Law and Technology (INJlLawTech) from 2005
* Central Information Commission of India Decisions from 2006
* Indian Cyber Appellate Tribunal from 2010
