regales us with some more of her thoughts concerning the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market and its online services. The MARQUES Class 99 weblog has just let us know that Russia has joined Ireland and South Korea as recent participants in OHIM's DesignView programme. Incidentally, next Tuesday the IPKat will be posting his regular three-monthly blogroll of friendly IP blogs in which he and his fellow contributors are involved. There will be

"Thanks for publishing the review. Academic authors have certain limitations in certain respects and that is true for practitioners also. But being a new entrant in this field I have highest regard for the reviewer as he is closely dealing with the practical issues and seeks practical solutions. I am always open to improvements and also to the challenges. Its so kind of the reviewer that he is willing to assist me for my further projects in this area. Yes, I am poised to dig into the details of this converging field of law and technology and will seek the reviewer's advice. Thanks a lot!"This Kat thoroughly commends Kshitij's exemplary and positive attitude, and wishes him success in his further work in this area. It is a regular theme of this weblog that academics and practitioners have much to learn from one another, collectively and individually and, if publication of last week's book review will lead to further intellectual and practical cross-fertilisation, we will all have gained from it.
Gordon Ramsay, the celebrity Scottish-born chef and restaurateur whose language is a good deal more salty than his menus. However, it seems that while bad language is his metaphorical trade mark [see for instance here, here and here -- plus Hell's Kitchen montage on YouTube here], it is his name that supports his commercial goodwill. According to the Telegraph, in proceedings before the High Court (this Kat presumes that the jurisdiction is England and Wales), Ramsay is seeking to stop what is described as a Tenerife-based restaurant trading as "Gordon Ransay's".
English-language entry for "Gordon Ransay's" is, at the time of posting this blog, headed "Gordon Ramsay's". The Telegraph report indicates that foreign lawyer have also been instructed, so it may be that parallel proceedings are underway, but the report contains little by way of legal detail. For the record, Gordon Ramsay's restaurants (of which one is illustrated on the left) do not appear to use his name on their frontage -- though this is something that is likely to be unknown to many or indeed most Tenerife holidaymakers, though they may be familiar with Ramsay's name through his books and media appearances (he is sufficiently well known to have featured in The Simpsons).
