Around the weblogs. The jiplp weblog carries two items of interest: a list of a further five books awaiting the attentions of a reviewer (don't forget -- the reviewer gets to keep the book) and a neat note by Michele Giannino on the position of unincorporated associations as trade mark owners in Italy. The 1709 Blog contains Ben's comments on the IFPI Digital Music Report 2014. On the IP Finance blog, Anne Fairpo gives a swift round-up of the IP-related provisions of the UK's budget earlier today -- a theme which Elizabeth Emerson's note on Art & Artifice touches on when she looks at the tax position relating to cultural gifts and national heritage property.
