Message to Google. The IPKat is not sure whether the improvement in performance of the new Google software since he posted his open letter to the company is simply a random event or is a direct consequence of the kind intervention of the anonymous IPKat-reading Google personality who read it and said he'd see if he could get it actioned. Either way, this entire post has been composed without any technical hiccups at all -- and it's a very long time since the Kat has been able to say that. Thanks, he says. Hope you don't get into trouble with your boss, adds Merpel.

I have been looking for a distant learning LLM relating to patents or more specific, to patent litigation. I know of three European possibilities: Nottingham (patent litigation), CEIPI in Strasbourg and Hagen in Germany. Are there any other options, especially in the UK? I am interested in Nottingham, although I find it very UK specific. Are there any plans of changing this to make it more European or is there another course offered? I am thinking in view of the European Patent Court, if this ever becomes reality. I have asked in Nottingham, but haven´t received anything other than the programme of the litigation LLM.Any suggestions, or inside information? Do let our reader know.
